Don’t miss one of the best family events of the season! Meet forty of your favorite Brooklyn authors and illustrators as they share their latest books. This free event features storybooks, picture books, chapter books, and graphic novels—fiction and nonfiction—for young book lovers from preschoolers to middle schoolers.
