Bring the whole family to this exciting session featuring new picture books--read for you by their creators themselves! Artist EB Goodale recently won a Massachusetts Book Award for her earlier collaboration with Julia Denos, Windows; now she's here to present their new project, Here & Now, a beautifully illustrated meditation on mindfulness we could all benefit from. Author and illustrator Oge Mora, who received Caldecott Honors for her first book, Thank You, Omu!, will read from her new book, Saturday, which celebrates a mother and daughter’s special day together—even when things don’t go perfectly. Debut author Gloria Respress-Churchwell will introduce us to a real-life character with a courageous story: Chester Pierce, Harvard’s first black football player. She tells his story in Follow Chester! And finally, Raúl Gonzales III will take us on a trip to a bustling mercado packed with lively and unexpected details, in ¡Vamos!: Let’s Go to the Market. BPL Grove Hall Branch librarian Angela Bonds will host this fun series of story times for kids and their grownups.
