Children's Book Week Event with Author Emma Otheguy

Event date: 
Saturday, May 5, 2018 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Children's Book Week is an annual event emphasizing the myriad ways to enjoy the quality and inspiration of books for children and teens. Its "Every Child a Reader" motto has propelled it since 1919, helping it become the nation's largest literacy initiative. On Saturday, May 5 at 10:30 a.m. we welcome author Emma Otheguy to Bank Street Bookstore to celebrate Children's Book Week. Emma shares "Marti's Song for Freedom," her biography of Cuban freedom fighter José Marti. Marti's life is well described in this book about understanding the need for freedom in the lives of Cubans -- and all people around the world. Meet Emma and hear a story of strength and standing up for important principles and beliefs.
