Join FFR/Princeton BTGALA and Yale GALA for a Children’s Book Reading and Social at Uptown Community Bookstore. 4 PM reading of The Adventures of Mrs. Patropolis -- a new children’s book by Diana Silverman (Princeton) with New York stories. While the book is written for children ages 4 to 6, the space is very welcoming to younger and older children, as well, and there will be an opportunity to walk around and chat throughout, even during the reading. People of all ages are welcome for an intergenerational afternoon. Everyone is welcome.
Here is a little information about The Adventures of Mrs. Patropolis: What do a dancing bagel, a missing saber tooth, and a disappearing Egyptian statue all have in common? They are all part of the magical universe of Mrs. Patropolis, who takes her niece and nephew, Ellie and Daniel, on adventures around New York City. Together they meet cats of many colors, not to mention a couple of zany dogs, and they attend parties, theaters and museums, sometimes in the company of their neighbors, longtime women life partners, Masha and Kasha, as well as Mr. Rashid Katz and his little, fuzzy white dog, Paco.
