A day of special guests and activities takes place Saturday, April 29 at Bank Street Book Store. Join us in acknowledging and appreciating the joy of children's books with author Leonard Marcus. Although we ALL consider ourselves experts on Little Golden Books, Leonard is the true authority. In fact, he has written a book called "Golden Legacy: The Story of Golden Books" to share his knowledge on the subject -- and his ever-present wit. Leonard helps us celebrate Independent Bookstore Day as well as the 75th anniversary of Little Golden Books starting at 10:30 a.m. Join us for stories that are kept alive through wonderful traditions, including the lasting tradition of Bank Street Book Store.
