Virtual Author Talk with Karina Yan Glaser

April 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for our second annual Community Reads for Kids featuring The Vanderbeekers Make a Wish by Karina Yan Glaser. Our community reading program strives to get everyone in the County to read and discuss the same book. The program includes a virtual book discussion and a live Zoom event with the author.

In The Vanderbeekers Make a Wish, the Vanderbeeker children are busy planning Papa’s fortieth birthday when they find an old letter that pulls them into a family mystery. The Vanderbeekers series has received acclaim from numerous publications, including Booklist, The School Library Journal, and the New York Times. The Vanderbeekers of 41st Street was a California Young Readers Medal Finalist and a Junior Library Guild Selection.

Originally from California, Karina went to New York City for college and has lived there for over twenty years. She has had a varied career teaching and implementing literacy programs in family homeless shelters and recruiting healthcare professionals to volunteer in under-resourced areas around the world. She lives in Harlem with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, and three cats. Karina is also a contributing editor at Book Riot, where she writes the weekly The Kids Are All Right newsletter and children’s book recommendations.
