📚🌟 Lil’ Readers Presents: A Day with Carlos Matias! 🌟📚

Mark your calendars for June 15th as we welcome the fantastic author Carlos Matias, who will be reading from his debut picture book, "Emergency Quarters." Join us for an enchanting journey through the streets of New York City with young Ernesto, who must decide how best to use his shiny new quarters - for emergencies only or tempting treats? Award-winning illustrator Gracey Zhang's visuals brilliantly capture the essence of city life, making this a perfect pick for fans of touching, spirited narratives.

Art Activity: Unleash your creativity with Arts and Crafts by Frihda Arts! Inspired by Ernesto’s adventures, participate in crafting your own artistic creations and take home a piece of the story. 

Parent Workshop: Enhance your visit with our PBS Parent Workshop on Everyday Science on the same day! Explore engaging scientific concepts through practical, fun activities that spark curiosity for all ages. 

Special Offer: The first 30 families will receive a free, signed copy of "Emergency Quarters" by Carlos Matias himself!

Dive into a day of reading, creativity, and learning. Foster a love for reading and science in the heart of our community. We can’t wait to see you there!
