"Poetry for Kids: Walt Whitman" Introduced by Editor Karen Karbenier

Begin the weekend at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, September 9 at 10:30 a.m. and enjoy a poetic reading of works for children by Karen Karbenier, editor of "Poetry for Kids: Walt Whitman." Karen, like most poetry fans, is under the powerfully persuasive sway of Whitman's works, and she is decidedly in favor of introducing many of his classic poems at the earliest possible age. Join us at 2780 Broadway -- no fees or reservations required.

The Real Superheroes of Music

As a teacher and musician, Lucy Warner knows the true superheroes of music do not necessarily perform on stages at rock concerts, but instead are the composers of the classical canon. That's why Lucy introduces young listeners to Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and others in her book "Zap! Boom! Pow! Superheroes of Music." Meet the author at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, April 8 at 10:30 a.m.
