Singing (and Marching!) with Laurie Berkner

Event date: 
Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

On Saturday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m., Bank Street Book Store is pleased and proud to welcome musician/author Laurie Berkner! Laurie's new book, "We Are the Dinosaurs," based on her song of the same name, marches into the store with a live performance and book signing. In the past, Laurie worked as a children's music specialist, providing a perfect background for her career as a performer whose songs really connect with kids. She writes music and lyrics that people of all ages love hearing (and singing) again and again. Now that one of the favorite songs in Laurie's repertoire is a book, families have wonderful chance to read and sing together every time they open the book. Join us on May 20 for a musical treat.
