Friday, Nov. 8, 7 p.m.
On Friday, November 8 at 7 p.m., we’ll host author Andrea Beaty, who is known for a series of best-selling picture books called the Questioneer
s series. Among the books are: Rosie Revere, Engineer
, Iggy Peck, Architect
, and Ada Twist, Scientist
. At our event, Andrea will be talking about the newest book in the series: Sofia Valdez, Future Prez
. The book touches on themes of community, public engagement and speaking up for what's right. Beaty will be joined by Takoma Park Mayor Kate Stewart, who will talk briefly about how she got involved in politics and offer advice for aspiring young politicians in the audience about how they can make a difference in their community. At our event, Politics and Prose will sell copies of Beaty's books, but our program is free and no purchase is required to attend. (Note: the Library will close, as usual on Fridays, at 6 p.m., and then re-open shortly before 7 p.m. just for this event).
