Indies First Fall 2014 with Betsy Bird and More!

11/29/2014 8:00 pm

Join author and children's book blogger Betsy Bird along with Sergio Ruzzier, Amanda Maciel and other local authors in celebrating and supporting independent bookstores, especially Bank Street Bookstore, on the next Indies First Day, November 29, 2104.

Sergio Ruzzier will share his newest picture book, A Letter for Leo, at story hour at 10:30 am.

Amanda Maciel will be on hand at 4:00 pm to read from Tease, her new novel for young adults.

And we understand there will be Betsy Bird sightings, so here's your chance to get a signed copy of her Publishing Industry Tell-All Wild Things, and hear her sage thoughts on beloved books old and new.

And more local authors are expected to stop in during the day– maybe because we will be serving BUBBLY and FUDGE all day to celebrate our continued survival and the wonderful new space on 107th and Broadway.

So come by and meet the authors, enjoy a glass of sparkling juice, water or wine, a piece of homemade fudge, and hey, you can browse our 85% Off Blue Dot Items sale (which will be going on all weekend long) while you are here.

And thank you for supporting Bank Street Bookstore!

Join the Indies First Facebook page for live updates.

Sergio Ruzzier-10:30 am

Amanda Maciel-4:00 pm

Picture Book Month

November is Picture Book Month, an international literacy event celebrating print picture books throughout the entire month. The world needs picture books! -- for many reasons, but especially because there is just nothing quite like the physical page-turn of a beautifully crafted book that becomes a child's favorite read. Celebrate the occasion at Bank Street Bookstore on Saturday, November 29 when authors and illustrators join us to honor Picture Book Month as well as Indies First Day in support of independent bookstores and booksellers.

"The Expeditioners" Are Back

Get to know Kit, Zander, and M. K., the main characters in "The Expeditioners and the Secret of King Triton's Lair," and your reading time will be well spent. Author Sarah Taylor and illustrator Katherine Roy stopped by Bank Street Bookstore this week to talk about their latest collaboration -- and sign copies of this terrific tale of a mysterious, unknown stretch of the Caribbean Sea.

How to Succeed in the Book Business by Really Trying

Are you surprised independent bookstores are on the rise again? Well, neither are we. Here's Slate.com's recent explanation:

Come help us celebrate the good news on Saturday, November 29 during our Indies First event with children's book authors Betsy Bird, Sergio Ruzzier, Amanda Maciel, and lots of great sale prices!

Global Teaching, Learning, and Ideas

When educator and author Kofi Amouzou visited Bank Street Bookstore on Sunday, November 16, his natural storytelling abilities were on wonderful display. Kofi talked about his book, "Kofi a Child of Lavie," while listeners followed his personal story of growing up and finding a chance to make literacy his main goal in life -- for himself and others.

Friendly Faces

Customers always encounter a friendly face at Bank Street Bookstore. In fact, just yesterday author Robie Harris, above, whose latest book for children is "What's So Yummy? All About Eating Well and Feeling Good," paid us a visit. And new staff member Zohra, below, paused for a moment to say hello. Come in for a smile, a greeting, and a great book recommendation or two.
