Story Time with Dan Yaccarino

Please join Phoenix Books and the Vermont Italian Cultural Association (VICA) for a special virtual Saturday story time event with award-winning illustrator and author, Dan Yaccarino on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at 11 AM.   Dan will be sharing two of his recent picture books with us, All the Way to America: The Story of a Big Italian Family and a Little Shovel and The Longest Storm.  VICA is especially excited to highlight Dan's strong connection to his Italian-American background found in All the Way to America which introduces a version of the immigration story not unlike what many have grown up hearing around the dinner table. 

For more information or the register for this event please click HERE.
