"42 Is Not Just a Number" by Doreen Rappaport

Event date: 
Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Say the number 42 and those within earshot immediately think of baseball great Jackie Robinson. Author Doreen Rappaport's new biography of this one-of-a-kind sports legend goes far beyond the 42 on his uniform to let readers know of Robinson's outstanding lifetime achievements. Doreen, a passionate Dodgers fan, talks about the research she conducted that led to "42 Is Not Just a Number," a portrait of a player for all time -- perfect for readers from eight to 12 years old. The event takes place Sunday, October 1 at 2:00 p.m. at Bank Street Book Store.

"His Royal Highness, King Baby" by Sally Lloyd-Jones

Event date: 
Saturday, October 7, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Meet author Sally Lloyd-Jones and enjoy her reading of "His Royal Highness, King Baby," the story of an infant interloper who arrives to upend the fairy tale fate of a young princess and her family. Life is not the same with this new ruler in the house. His every burp and poop is remarked on and complimented. With whimsy and good humor, the author tells the happy-ever-after (at least sometimes) story of siblings who learn to soothe -- and love -- each other in comic style. Join us at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, October 7 at 10:30 a.m.
