A day of special guests and activities takes place Saturday, April 29 at Bank Street Book Store. Join us in acknowledging and appreciating the joy of children's books with author Leonard Marcus. Although we ALL consider ourselves experts on Little Golden Books, Leonard is the true authority. In fact, he has written a book called "Golden Legacy: The Story of Golden Books" to share his knowledge on the subject -- and his ever-present wit. Leonard helps us celebrate Independent Bookstore Day as well as the 75th anniversary of Little Golden Books starting at 10:30 a.m. Join us for stories that are kept alive through wonderful traditions, including the lasting tradition of Bank Street Book Store.

Presenting everyone's favorite author/artist Peter Reynolds at Bank Street Book Store on Sunday, April 30 at 11:00 a.m. Peter joins us to share his new book "Happy Dreamer," a perfect gift for the young graduate in your life. Peter's talents are on perfect display in this story of finding yourself and making your mark. His message encourages kids try new things to find how they can soar and succeed. Dare to dream is the positive refrain of this delightful book, which follows other favorites such as "The Dot" and "Ish" (also available for Peter to sign the day of the event). Join us for a morning celebrating milestone moments in the journey of life.

Argyle Fox is a creative creature who loves a good game, but when he takes his rather less-than-durable playthings outside, they whoosh away. Thanks to his mother's passion for knitting (how do you think the main character got his name?), Argyle thinks of ways to save the day -- and grows quite resourceful in the process. Hear author/illustrator Marie Letourneau read her book "Argyle Fox" on Saturday, May 6 at 10:30 a.m. at Bank Street Book Store and enjoy a positive story of perseverance and outcomes. Marie will also sign copies of her book for everyone who loves spring flings and things.

Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 1:00pm

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.
