EYES WIDE OPEN signing with Paul Fleischman

09/23/2014 4:00 pm
 

Newbury award winning author Paul Fleischman (Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices, 1989) appears at Bank Street Bookstore on Tuesday, September 23 to celebrate the publication of his newest work.

EYES WIDE OPEN, Going Behind the Environmental Headlines is a book for every young person who is concerned about the environment and wants to understand the psychology, politics and economics behind the media coverage of environmental issues and its often confusing messages.

The goal of this guide, Paul states, is to give “readers 14 and up the briefing they need to comprehend their moment in history.”

The tools Paul teaches in EYES WIDE OPEN engage teenagers in “searching out the principles that decode a thousand headlines at a swoop.”

Paul Fleischman has won a Newbery Honor for Graven Images, the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction for Bull Run, the California Young Reader Medal for Weslandia, and was a National Book Award finalist for Breakout. In 2012 he was the United States' author candidate for the international Hans Christian Andersen Award for the body of his work.

 Little Melba and Her Big Trombone From as far back as anyone can remember, Melba Doretta Liston loved music. As a young child, Melba hummed, sang, and listened, nurturing her musical gifts. She taught herself to play the trombone, eventually joining a jazz band to tour the country and share the joy of music everywhere she went. Despite Melba’s encounters with obstacles of race and gender, she succeeded in making music, always her passion, into her life’s work.
 On Saturday, September 20 at 10:30 a.m., author Katheryn Russell-Brown will read Little Melba and Her Big Trombone, a book about perseverance and the pursuit of dreams. Join us at Bank Street Bookstore.

09/19/2014 10:30 am
 

There's a cute new bunny in town and its creator, Mandy Gray, joins us for morning storytime on Friday, September 19 at 10:30 AM. Mandy will be reading book one in her series, The Adventures of Bunny and Jody.

Bunny is discovering that the world is a big and curious place. His adventures help him with lessons and skills that prove handy as he grows and learns. Even his friends are impressed with Bunny's ability to begin to understand the world around him.

The Adventures of Bunny and Jody, Illustrated by Lesley Lee Jones, is Mandy's big debut. What began as an impromptu story for her toddler slowly blossomed into a series all children can enjoy. She's currently working on books three and four in the series.

“I look forward to welcoming all into the world of Bunny!” says Mandy.

Unexpected Guest

One of the pleasures of working at a bookstore is meeting the talented people who create children's books. Jennifer Hansen Rolli is one such person. She wrote and illustrated a favorite summertime title, "Just One More," about Ruby, a child who lives large, always believing that more is more. Jennifer graciously stopped by Bank Street Bookstore to sign "Just One More." Pick up a copy at the bookstore soon!

 

Two Friends, One Fridge

The main character in "Maddi's Fridge" lives in a home with lots of love, but not enough food. As written by Lois Brandt, the book allows children to begin exploring what it means to be hungry. Illustrator Vin Vogel, below, who portrays Maddi and her friend Sofia as charming, contemporary kids, will appear at Bank Street Bookstore September 13 as we read "Maddi's Fridge" to all who attend Saturday storytime at 10:30 a.m.
