The Library Foundation’s Annual Great Big Book Bash program is back again to give children and families a chance to interact with their favorite authors. This year, the Great Big Book Bash will serve as a kick-off to our Summer Reading Program on May 21, 2011 at the Main Branch Library. Two sessions will be hosted featuring two different authors:
Eric Litwin, Pete the Cat (10AM session)
The morning session is focused on children pre-school age to 2nd grade and will feature “song singer, tale teller, music maker” NY Times Best-Selling Author Eric Litwin, author of Pete the Cat. Eric is a popular performing artist who plays interactive music, tells musical stories and brings books to life. He plays at schools and libraries across the country. Mr. Eric has won a Parents Choice Award, iParenting Media Award, The Children’s Music Web Award and many more. He is the co-creator of The Learning Groove which offers parent and child music classes.
