Local guest authors & illustrators will come by 57th Street Books to read from their Children's books. Check our events calendar for upcoming dates and details.

Colin McDonald brings a love of language and background in preschool (teaching) to monthly Saturday morning storytime. With live guitar, simple action songs and sing-a-longs, and resonant stories of wonder and calm, our monthly Saturday storytime is full of humor, gentleness, and fun for all, but especially ages 0-6. Find Colin's storytime dates below!   

Award-winning children's-book author Franny Billingsley not only read books, both new and old, during her Sunday storyhours but invite kids to participate in sing-a-longs and finger plays. She likes books about mutant potatoes who enter beauty contests and sharks who have to go to the dentist--perfect for the zero-to-six crowd (but all are welcome). And if some Sunday you should find that your toes are particularly restive, please know that we end every storyhour by singing them to sleep.
