Author and Illustrator Vanessa Brantley-Newton will read from and discuss her book "Grandma's Purse," which takes readers on a wonderful adventure. When Grandma Mimi comes to visit, her granddaughter cannot wait to see what treasures she has hidden in her purse. That's where the adventure begins!
At this free Born to Read program for kids ages birth to 8 years and their parents or caregivers, each family will receive a free copy of the book, while supplies last. Author Brantley-Newton will sign books and meet readers after the event.
Saturday, March 23 at 10 a.m. at the Schlafly Branch of the St. Louis Public Library. Free.
