Family Days: One of Us release – May 24th

Posted Friday, April 9th, 2010 at 6:49 am by Neighborbee in Cultural Bees. More in 10025


On Monday, May 24, come to Book Culture in Morningside Heights for a celebration of the release of One of Us, a new children’s book from Peggy Moss & Penny Weber about bravely being who you are! The book is being released in conjunction with Powered by Girl, a new campaign from Hardy Girls Healthy Women designed to educate young teen girls about the impact of media on their lives and empower them use their creativity, wit, and individuality to make a difference. With inspiring speakers, art, great food and much more, there really will be something for all ages and interests at this lively event!

Bring the kids to Book Culture on Broadway (Broadway at 114th St.) at 4:00pm for their own book launch, recommended for ages 5-11. They’ll be one of the first to hear this brand-new story, read by author Peggy Moss, and will see first-hand how a book is made. Then they’ll dive into the glue & glitter with illustrator Penny Weber to create their very own starring characters, just like Roberta and her friends in One of Us!


At 6:00, the party will move to Book Culture on 112th St (Between Broadway & Amsterdam). Come to hear some amazing speakers, including author & educator Lyn Mikel Brown (Packaging Girlhood), plus-size supermodel Sage Salzer, children’s author/illustrator Dimitrea Tokunbo and her daughters, Emily & Mercy, and girls & women advocate and humorist Betsy Sweet. Then stay on to enjoy the reception, with music by singer/songwriter & disability advocate Brooke Fox, booksignings, interactive art projects, refreshments, prizes, and lots more! And don’t miss the exhibit of self-portraits by children’s book illustrators, on display all week at Book Culture and on sale to benefit Powered by Girl.
