Books, Authors & Kids is a one-hour program dedicated to storytelling, literacy and visual art, and provides families with an opportunity to engage with some of their favorite children’s books authors and illustrators. After an interactive book read, families create art together in connection with the featured book, which they are also able to borrow from an NYPL branch library to continue reading at home. Children and families participate in meaningful experiences through dynamic stories that activate imagination and creativity.
