    Enjoy your Saturday morning with a reading of the children’s book Escargot, by Dashka Slater.  After we read together, we'll have a fun and interactive healthy food activity.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  A charming, funny, interactive picture book that is ideal for picky eaters and animal lovers alike. Escargot is a beautiful French snail who wants only two things: 
    1. To be your favorite animal. 
    2. To get to the delicious salad at the end of the book. 
    But when he gets to the salad, he discovers that there's a carrot in it. And Escargot hates carrots. But when he finally tries one—with a little help from you!—he discovers that it's not so bad after all.

    Join Anthony Grudin for a talk on his new book, Warhol's Working Class: Pop Art and Egalitarianism.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  This book explores Andy Warhol’s creative engagement with social class. During the 1960s, as neoliberalism perpetuated the idea that fixed classes were a mirage and status an individual achievement, Warhol’s work appropriated images, techniques, and technologies that have long been described as generically “American” or “middle class.” Drawing on archival and theoretical research into Warhol’s contemporary cultural milieu, Grudin demonstrates that these features...
