Time for some jolly! Ladies and gentlemen, our next NYC Kidlit Drinks Night will be next Monday, December 13, starting at 6:30 p.m., at Faces & Names, 159 W. 54th St. at 8th Ave. (apologies for the short notice but both Cheryl and I have been remarkably busy as of late). Fortify yourself against the winter with a hot toddy, or, if you’re overheating from being too bundled up, you can pretend it’s summer with a nice G&T. Either way, we shall talk books, share end-of-year favorites, catch up with friends, and otherwise engage in holiday cheer.
And: We will once again be doing a holiday book drive for a worthy cause — the Children for Children Ongoing Book Drive, in partnership with Project Cicero. Please bring new and gently used children’s books for grades K-12. As these books will be directed to New York City public schools and preschools, books featuring characters of color are especially appreciated, but ALL books are welcome and will find good homes. See http://www.childrenforchildren.org/index.php?q=node/26#ongoing for more information.
Hope to see you next Monday, and happy December in the meantime —
Cheryl Klein & Betsy Bird
