 TONI YULY

Sunday, February 15th at 3 p.m.

Artist Toni Yuly returns to our stage today to celebrate the release of Night Owl (Fiewel and Friends), her second children’s picture book for preschoolers and kindergarteners. In this delightful story, a brave young owl listens to night sounds while looking for his mother. And Toni Yuly’s first book, Early Bird, has a new board book edition, which is perfect for little nature lovers. Please join us!

 KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR

Thursday, February 19th at 7 p.m.

at Seattle Central Public Library 

Co-presented with the WASHINGTON CENTER FOR THE BOOK AT THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. We are thrilled and honored to help present this evening with one of the most extraordinary and accomplished individuals in this country, over a whole range of ways over most of the past sixty years. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was first known as one of the finest basketball players, at the collegiate and professional levels, of all-time. He has been active in a variety of dimensions in the years since retiring – one of the most eloquent, thoughtful, vital writers we have on historic and contemporary political, social, and cultural matters, writing articles and books for both adults and young readers. He is here this evening with the newly published second book in a “Streetball Crew” series, a fun, instructive, engaging book called Stealing the Game (Disney Hyperion). There is basketball in this story, but there is much else. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s earlier children’s book, What Color is My World?, won the NAACP Award for Best Children’s Book. This night should be something. Free admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Seattle Public Central Library is at 1000 Fourth Avenue (between Madison & Spring).
