While kids and families enjoyed activities at the Bank Street Fall Fair on Saturday, October 18, Bank Street Bookstore tried to keep pace with fun festivities of our own:
* Author Michelle Markel
and artist Melissa Sweet
(both pictured above) talked about their book "Brave Girl,"
the inspiring story of Clara Lemlich, who led one of the largest labor walk-outs in U. S. history to protest unfair working conditions for children and women.
* Illustrator Doug Cushman
(pictured above) shared his book "Pumpkin Time!"
a seasonal treat that delights in the result of a well-tended autumn garden.
* "Unfriended" author Rachel Vail
(pictured above) treated middle-schoolers and many others to a reading of her new book, a smart (and cautionary) tale of friendship in a world of hyper-connectedness.
