David Zeltser, The Night Library

Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 4:00pm

The Polar Express meets The Night at the Museum in this fantastical picture-book adventure about the magic of books and libraries, perfect for book lovers of all ages!

After a young boy goes to sleep upset that he's getting a book for his birthday, he's visited in the night by Patience and Fortitude, the two stone lions who guard the New York Public Library. Soon, he's magically whisked away from his cozy home in the Bronx, and the two mighty lions show him the wonder of the library. There, the inquisitive Latino boy discovers the power of books and their role not only in his own life, but also in the lives of the people he loves.

Raul Colon's gorgeous, rich art creates an immersive world in this book about books, which is sure to capture the imaginations of kids and adults and inspire them to grab their library cards and dive into the worlds of stories.

DAVID ZELTSER emigrated with his family from the former Soviet Union at age five. After graduating from Harvard with a degree in physics, he was admitted to vet school to study wildlife medicine, but ultimately came back to his first love--storytelling. David and his friend Julia Chiapella cofounded the Santa Cruz Young Writers Program's tutoring and writing center at the Museum of Art & History. He lives in Santa Cruz, California, with his wife, Fiona; their daughter, Naomi; and their dog, Ella.
