ARTHUR A. LEVINE AT SECRET GARDEN:
Secret Garden Books is hosting Arthur on Wednesday, November 2 at 7 p.m. for an event to promote his picture book MONDAY IS ONE DAY. Author Arthur A. Levine and illustrator Julian Hector deliver a love note from a working parent to a child, counting the days of the week--each one a special opportunity to spend time together. The author will read his book, answer our millions of questions (including questions about what it's like being J.K. Rowling's U.S. editor!) and sign books available for sale. Free!
