Kidlit Drink Night: January Prediction/Book Drop
Don’t try to resist. You know you want to attend.
starting at 6:30 p.m.
Faces & Names, 159 W. 54th St. in NYC
Because the ALA awards will be a scant five days away, we’ll have a Newbery/Caldecott/Printz prediction contest with FABULOUS PRIZES — to be determined, but we promise they’ll be worthy of the all-caps. And we’ll be collecting kids’ and YA books for Project Cicero , "an annual non-profit book drive designed to create — or supplement — school and classroom libraries for children in under-resourced New York City public schools." So gather your guesses and your extra books and join us on Wednesday the 13th!
(And if you’d like to be on our e-mail list for future events, shoot us a message at nyckidlitdrinks at gmail dot com.)
