Paris by Phone: A Reading with Pamela Druckerman (ages 5–adult) [VIRTUAL; RSVP REQUIRED]
March 6 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min
For children ages 5+ their families
Enjoy a reading of Paris by Phone by bestselling author Pamela Druckerman, followed by a Q&A.
The magic of independence meets the meaning of home in the picture book debut of the #1 bestselling author of Bringing Up Bébé. When Josephine Harris decides that Paris is where she really belongs, all it takes is a quick call on her magical phone to whisk her away. The city of lights has fancy cafés, baguettes under every arm, the Eiffel Tower, and a fabulous new family who can’t wait to show her around.
Join us as Pamela reads Paris by Phone from her own home in the city of light, and then stick around for a Q&A about her writing process and the inspiration for her first picture book.
