Andrea Beaty presents Sofia Valdez, Future Prez
Part of BPL Presents
Free and open to the public
Did you hear? There’s a new Questioneer! Acclaimed author Andrea Beaty and illustrator David Roberts join forces once again for the latest addition to their bestselling Questioneer series, Sofia Valez, Future Prez. Meet Sofia Valdez, a Mexican American second-grader at Blue River Creek Elementary School. Every morning, her Abuelo walks Sofia to school . . . until the day that Abuelo hurts his ankle at a local landfill and can no longer do so. Sofia misses her Abuelo and wonders what she can do about the dangerous Mount Trashmore. Then she gets an idea: the town can turn the slimy mess into a park! She brainstorms and plans and finally works up the courage to go to City Hall—only to be told by a clerk that she can’t build a park because she’s just a kid. Sofia is down but not out, and she sets out to prove what one kid can do. Beaty presents her new book with a visual presentation and talk as part of BPL Presents! Volunteers from Common Cause NY and Make the Road NY join us at this special event to teach kids how they can get involved with their communities like Sofia!
The BPL Central Branch is located at 10 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn.
