Karina Yan Glaser, The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden

Wednesday, November 28, 2018 - 5:00 PM | Members' Room | open to the public | for grades 3 and up | $10 per person, payable at the door | registration required

When catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbors, the Vanderbeeker children set out to build the best, most magical healing garden in Harlem—in spite of a locked fence, thistles and trash, and the conflicting plans of a wealthy real estate developer.

Karina Yan Glaser reads from her newest book, a sequel to her New York Times notable book The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street, and shares the secrets of how authors are inspired to write about what matters most to them. A mini-workshop follows where participants will explore different techniques to express their personal passions in their own writing.
