Family Event

Fun and educational events for the whole family

Curious George O'Connor

Event date: 
Sunday, April 9, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

George O'Connor is not only an incredibly talented author and illustrator, he is also a scholar of Greek mythology. His latest book, "Artemis Wild Goddess of the Hunt," is a great example, in graphic novel form, of his knowledge and expertise. His portrait of Artemis, in pictures and words, provides young readers with a deep understanding of this nature-loving huntress/goddess. The Artemis book is the latest addition to George's Olympians series and will be featured at Bank Street Book Store on Sunday, April 9 at 2:00 p.m. when George presents this new book as well as other favorites from the series. Join us!

"Mama's Kisses" with Kate McMullan

Event date: 
Saturday, May 13, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Meet author Kate McMullan and hear her read her newest book (just in time for Mother's Day!) "Mama's Kisses" at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, May 13 at 10:30 a.m. This rhyming story is a perfect addition to bedtime routines everywhere -- and is perfectly relatable to every parent ready to call it a day. The animal mamas in the book know it is time to say goodnight even if their animal babies might disagree. The end result is a successful, peaceful, and (finally) sleep-filled night in the jungle -- with lots of kisses in the end, of course. Kate will sign copies of her book for kids to give their own mamas for Mother's Day.
