Children’s Book Fair at Brooklyn Museum This Saturday, Nov. 21

Know any kids? The Brooklyn Museum is hosting its third annual Children’s Book Fair this Saturday, with more than 30 Brooklyn authors and illustrators.

The fair features storybooks, picture books, and graphic novels and will include author readings, a game for children, and café service.

One of our favorite authors/illustrators appearing Saturday will be Melanie Hope Greenberg, who created favorites like "Down in the Subway," "Mermaids On Parade," "Good Morning Digger" and more. The illustration above is from "Mermaids On Parade," a colorful, shimmering book very much in keeping with Coney Island.

Saturday, November 21, 2009 from 12–4 p.m.
Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion, 1st Floor
Sponsored by Astoria Federal Savings.
