in Featured Events

On Sunday, December 9, 2012 join the Church Street School for a Holiday Bookfair at Barnes and Noble White Plains for a variety of events for kids and adults.  From 11:00am – 6:00pm, there will be Mystery Readers, musical performances, scavenger hunts, author visits and more.  We hope to see you there!  Barnes & Noble, 230 Main Street, White Plains, New York, 10601

  • Kids:  Join us for a very special reading of the heartwarming story “The Polar Express” by White Plains Mayor, Tom Roach at 12:30pm.
  • Kids:  Meet award-winning author and globetrotter C. Alexander London, Author of “An Accidental Adventure Series” at 3:00pm City Center Barnes & Noble White Plains, New York. He’ll read from his book, “We Dine with Cannibals” about reluctant twin adventurers who’d rather watch TV!   If we are really lucky, he might even give us a sneak peek of his newest book, “We Give a Squid a Wedgie.”  He’ll also share his own adventures and answer any questions you might have!
  • Parents:  Meet local author Jenny Rosenstrach, author of Dinner: A Love Story, and it’s companion website  at 4:00pm.  Jenny will read from her book which is a cookbook/memoir that covers all the things that can happen at the family dinner table during all stages of a family’s life. That means it covers the Just-Moved-in-Together Stage, the Just-Married Stage, the New Parent Stage, the Bonafide All-Parties-Present-and-Eating Stage. It contains nearly 120 recipes (favorites from her blog as well as brand new soon-to-be favorites) and over 50 color photographs. It is a book for anyone reaching a milestone — moving in together, getting married, having a baby — as well as anyone who thinks that ending the day with a shared meal is, well…just about the best way to end a day!
