For more Dickens celebrations, don't miss the exhibit, Charles Dickens: The Key to Character at the New York Public Library Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd Street. Loved it!  And, if you were as engaged as I was by Catherine Robson at our event in September, she will be speaking at NYPL on Nov. 14 in association with this exhibit.

Dickens Event Day Sept. 13

The day started with 59 kids in the story time.
Followed by 32 kids in the craft session and an explosion of glitter. This is a substitute photo, there was no time to take a picture!

The calm after the storm. The library staff was amazing - not a spec of glitter anywhere!
