speaking and signing
|Kids, stick with us after storytime when we'll welcome two wonderful authors and one very special pup! Kathi Appelt will be here to share Mogie: The Heart of the House, the story of a real-life Labradoodle with a special talent: he always knows just what a sick kid needs. We're super lucky today because Mogie himself is making a special appearance! Also joining us is Rita Williams-Garcia, author of P. S. Be Eleven, the Coretta Scott King Award-winning novel and sequel to the bestseller and Newbery Honor Book One Crazy Summer, in which the Gaither sisters return to Brooklyn and find that changes large and small have come to their home. It's going to be so much fun! We're also going to enjoy tasty emapanadas courtesy of mmmpanadas. Yay!|
