Whats Popped Up: Childrens Literary Salon

I love going to the library and peruse shelf after shelf of treasured (and sometimes forgotten) books. And few libraries are as impressive as the main branch of the New York Public Library. In this increasingly digital age, I am pleased to see that the library can continue to be a focal point for research and community involvement.

To that end, I am pleased to participate in this month’s Children’s Literature Salon at Children's Center in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd Street. The Children’s Literary Salon 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 Salon provides a rotating series of talks with professionals in the field, and great conversation. This program is for adults only and is a first come, first seated event.

The clever paper engineer, Sam Ita will be sharing the microphone with me as we discuss all things pop-up. Elizabeth Bird will make sure we don’t stray too far off topic and moderate the informal hour-long. So, if you are in Manhattan this Saturday, March 5th, please join us in room 84. The event will begin at 2 pm and you can find directions to the event here.
