HARRISBURG, Pa.— Zach OHora will visit North Side Elementary, 4520 Devonshire Rd, Harrisburg, on Tuesday, April 3 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm as part of The Library’s celebration of this year’s One Book Every Young Child selection, My Cousin Momo. OHora will talk about writing and illustrating his books and The Library will provide activities for kids and families to enjoy.
Each family in attendance will get a copy of My Cousin Momo to keep and will have the opportunity to have it signed. This event is open to families with children of all ages. No registration required. Doors will open at 6:15 pm.
My Cousin Momo is a story about acceptance. When Momo, a flying squirrel, visits with his cousins, they are excited to see him – but Momo isn’t what they expected. My Cousin Momo was named Best Picture Book of 2015 by the Boston Globe and was a Junior Library Guild Selection. OHora’s Stop Snoring Bernard! was 2012’s One Book Every Young Child selection.
My Cousin Momo will also be featured in preschool Storytimes at all eight Dauphin County Libraries and at community outreaches during the week of April 2 to April 7. Registration is required for The Library’s Storytimes.
