Event description:

Artist, muralist, teacher, author, and Greenlight neighbor Katie Yamasaki shares a gentle, city-meets-country family story in her new picture book, When the Cousins Came. Lila is excited for her cousins Takeo and Rosie to visit. They’re going to ride bikes, paint, and camp together! But when the cousins arrive, everything’s wrong: Rosie and Takeo have different hair, eat with chopsticks, have skateboards instead of bikes, and don’t want to camp outside. Lila is terribly disappointed until the cousins make her a surprise: a big banner for their “best cousin,” Lila!  Inspired by Yamasaki’s own diverse family and childhood experiences, When the Cousins Came delicately balances the insecurity a child feels with the bonds of friendship, family, and common ground.  Yamasaki presents her book with an interactive reading and activities at Greenlight!

Note: this event takes place at both Greenlight Bookstore locations.
