Bank Street Book Store’s Grand Opening

I’m in the throes of revising and trying to get a few more pages in before heading off to work. So why rack my brains trying to create a worthy post when I can reblog Robin Newman‘s about the Grand Opening Festival of the Bank Street Bookstore?

Plus, her pictures are WAAAAAY better than mine. It feels as if you were there! Wonderful readings and signings by many of my favorite folks – including Robin herself. 🙂



It was a day of celebration for the Upper West Side, as Bank Street Book Store cut the red ribbon and opened its doors at its new location on 107th Street and Broadway. Children, parents, authors, illustrators, politicians, and friends of Bank Street from near and far came out in droves to show their love and support for the bookstore.

I am thrilled beyond words to have been a part of this great day.

Here are some highlights (contributing photography and videography by Zoe Newman Sachs, Donna Marie and Eric Pearl).
