Upcoming: Queens Library Event

On March 8th, Queens Library is hosting an event with me and authors Alex Shvartsman and Rob Dircks, in a restaurant in Long Island City. Details are here.

It’s safe to say that I owe nearly everything to the Queens Library, the public library system with which I grew up. Until the age of 12, this library system nurtured my love of reading. After the age of 12, I no longer had access to a library and in some ways, I’m still working to make up for the lost years. There is simply no way to overestimate the value of a library system to a community and in the lives of emerging readers. For the gift of childhood access to books, I’ll always be grateful to the Queens Library, and that gives this event a significance beyond the ordinary.
