The Art of Writing with Chris Raschka

Event date: 
Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Bank Street Book Store welcomes artist/author Chris Raschka on Sunday, May 7 at 1:00 p.m. for a very special reading/sharing of his new book "Doorman's Repose" In the book, Chris imagines the lives of city dwellers who reside within a slightly past-its-prime apartment building in New York City. He draws (and draws on) characters with the insight of someone curious about stories that might unwind behind the walls of a building in the great metropolis of New York. Have fun hearing the story as Chris describes creating "Doorman's Repose" in his unique style of words and pictures that contain both humor and a hint of magic.
