Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum 5816 Clarendon Rd. @ Ralph Ave Brooklyn NY
Boekdag – Dutch for “Book Day” – will be celebrated on May 19, 2012 at the Wyckoff Farmhouse. Boekdag will feature authors for all ages, storytelling, book making craft projects, and the Brooklyn Kidzmobile. This year we will also have a book swap, where participants who bring a book can freely exchange it for another. Brooklyn based children's author and illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg will read her latest book "Mermaids on Parade." Graphic novelist, artist and educator Laura Lee Gulledge will talk about her young adult graphic novel "Page by Paige" which follows her own journey to as an artist and writer moving to New York City. We haven't forgotten the grown ups either; Eliot Glazer, blogger, comedian and author of "My Parents Were Awesome" and crime novelist Hilary Davidson will address the adult audience. Make a mini book or mermaid tail at the craft table, snap a photo at the book cover inspired photo booth or grab some tacos and sliders from Mike & Willie's food truck. This event will keep the kids and adults entertained all day!
