Program Description

Event Details

Join the Children's Library for a deliciously sweet author event featuring local author, Marilyn Wolpin!

Families are invited to join us for a special storytime where we will listen to a read-aloud of Bring Back the Babka! When brothers search for their mama’s missing babka in their diverse Jewish neighborhood, they find other delicious treats and words of wisdom from each household instead. Can you help the brothers find the missing dessert?

As an extra treat, we will have a tasting of some delicious babka at the end of the program. The author will answer questions and sign books following the storytime. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.

Registration is not required, but anyone who registers in advance will be entered into a raffle drawing for a signed copy of Bring Back the Babka! along with a baking kit to make your own babka at home.

Recommended for families with children ages 3 and up.
