Children’s Literary Cafe: December

Here’s an event this Saturday you will not want to miss.

The Children’s Literary Café at the new Children’s Center at 42 nd Street is pleased to announce our event on Saturday, December 5th at 2:00 p.m.:

Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children’s Book

When you think of the great children’s and young adult book experts out there, one name consistently comes to mind. The author of 100 Best Books for Children and 500 Great Books for Teens, Anita Silvey has devoted 35 years to promoting books that will turn the young — and families — into readers. To do this she has appeared frequently on NPR, "The Today Show," "60 Minutes," and radio programs in the United States and Canada to talk about books for children and teenagers. As Publisher’s Weekly has said "It would be hard to find a more authoritative voice than Anita Silvey."

Ms. Silvey will be on hand to discuss her newest title, Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children’s Book.

The Children’s Literary Café is a monthly gathering of adults who are fans of children’s literature. Professionals, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers, teachers, and anyone else interested in the field are welcome to attend our meetings. The Literary Café provides free Advanced Readers galleys, a rotating series of talks with professionals in the field, and great conversation.

This program will be held in the South Court Auditorium.
