Kids Reading at powerHouse Arena (Sun Oct 9, 4-5pm)

This weekend, PowerHouse Arena is hosting an event titled “Nonfiction for Kids: A Triple Reading about Subway Trains, Heroic Dogs, and Science Experiments.” The event will feature three titles: 11 Experiments that Failed, Subway Story, and The Incredible Life of Balto (ages 4-8).

What happens to a subway car when it’s too old to carry passengers? Can a kid live off snow and ketchup for the rest of her life? What became of Balto, the celebrity dog, after the flashbulbs faded? Julia Sarcone-Roach (Subway Story), Jenny Offill and Nancy Carpenter (11 Experiments That Failed), and Meghan McCarthy (The Incredible Life of Balto) have all created picture books that answer one of these questions, and they’ll be reading and signing them at powerHouse.

Sunday, October 9, 2011, 4–5 PM
The powerHouse Arena, 37 Main Street (corner of Water & Main St.), DUMBO, Brooklyn
