Event Details

Welcome author and librarian Lydia Sigwarth for a very special storytime and book signing! 

Written by Lydia M. Sigwarth, Dear Librarian offers a moving true story—first told on the critically acclaimed radio show, NPR's This American Life—about a child experiencing homelessness who finds a safe haven in her local library. When Lydia was five years old, she and her family had to leave their home. They hopped from Grandma's house to Aunt Linda's house to Cousin Alice's house, but no place was permanent. Then one day, everything changed. Lydia's mom took her to a new place—the library.

Paired with warm art by newcomer Romina Galotta and a foreword by Ira Glass, Dear Librarian is a "thank you" to anyone who has offered a child love and support during a difficult time.
