Please join us at Pink Olive in Park Slope for the first ever Milk + Bookies store event in Brooklyn! Milk + Bookies is a non-profit organization that exposes children to how great it feels to give back while celebrating the love of a good book. By inviting children to donate a new book to children who have none of their own, Milk + Bookies inspires a new generation of philanthropists while supporting literacy efforts. There will be story time readings by three very special children’s book authors listed below, and of course, milk and cookies!
Pink Olive, in launching its new foundation, feedforlife.org, will match all book donations that day! From Pink Olive, the books will go to Madison Square Boys & Girls Club of NYC who will distribute the books to needy children around the city.
Story Time Readings in order of appearance:
11am - Sally Lloyd-Jones: Author of How to Be a Baby by Me Big Sister
12pm - Brett Helquist: Author/illustrator of Bedtime for Bear; Brett will conduct a drawing activity as well, teaching children how to draw a bear.
1pm - Caitlin Friedman: Author of How Do You Feed a Hungry Giant?
