Zetta Elliot is the author of numerous works. In her bio, she describes herself as “… a black feminist writer of poetry, plays, essays, novels, and stories for children. I was born and raised in Canada, but have lived in the US for nearly 20 years. I currently live in my beloved Brooklyn. When I’m not writing, you might find me strolling through the botanic garden…”

Come join us in the BNS/BCS Library on Monday, December 9th at 10:40am for a delightful opportunity to hear this powerful voice in children’s and Young Adult fiction.

The McMullans revisited

Last year, about this time, Kate and Jim McMullan, visited the library.  She is the author and he is the illustrator of such great picture books as “I Stink”, “I’m Fast” and “I’m Dirty“.  Shown here is a bit of their fantastic presentation to first graders.

Thanks to Weston Woods Studio for their permission to share!

Laura Hulbert, author of Who Has This Tail? visited all of the pre-k and kindergarten classes this morning. A great time was had by all and everyone learned a lot about how different kinds of animals use their tails. Laura signed copies of her book which the library will distribute to each pre-k and kindergarten classroom.

Buy copies of Who Has This Tail? or Laura’s other book, Who Has These Feet? from the BNS iStore!
