For this second edition of our books + breakfast series for young kids and their parents, we’ve invited renowned author Monica Kulling and illustrator Qin Leng to read from and talk about their latest children’s book, Happy Birthday, Alice Babette.
Inspired by the lives of artist Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Monica Kulling’s warm and whimsical narration is perfectly balanced by Qin Leng’s bright and energetic illustrations. This is a sweetly joyful story of love, friendship and creative inspiration.
In addition to their informal book presentation, Monica Kulling and Qin Leng will lead playful and interactive writing and drawing activities, for participating children. Families are also welcome to enjoy breakfast treats in the Coffee Public café* and additional interactive craft and play activities with the Smart Cookie Club.
Recommended for young children, toddlers to age 7
* Program does not include any food or beverages purchased at the Coffee Pub
