Well, I'm here to tell you that if you love Middle Grade books, the fun continues!!
That's right! Because on May 31, from 6:00 to 8:30 P.M. at the NYPL's Jefferson Market Library the very first, the inaugural Kids Author Carnival will be the happening place to be in NYC. It is your chance to meet around 37, count 'em, around 37* Middle Grade authors that you know and love. And the best part is that your age 7+ kids are more than welcome. In fact, age 7+ kids are encouraged to come to the Kids Author Carnival. And it's all FREE!
The Jefferson Market Library is located at 425 Avenue of the Americas at 10th Street, almost in the heart of Greenwich Village. You can find easy directions and a map HERE
Afraid you might not recognize the building once you get to the Village? No problem! It looks like this:
And speaking of Middle Grade books and the Jefferson Market Library, this is the very same place that Theo and her new best friend Bodhi go when they need to find information in Under the Egg. And by now, you may have noticed that Laura Marx Fitzgerald, who wrote Under the Egg, is one of the around 37, count 'em, around 37* authors at the first, the inaugural Kids Author Carnival. So...
Be there, or be square!
*Alexander London is not able to attend Kids Author Carnival, after all. Prior commitments and all that.
