Story Time with Ellen Weinstein

Saturday, April 20, 11:00am
Story Time: Ellen Weinstein presents Five Stories

Ellen Weinstein presents her new book Five Stories, in which five children, from five different cultures and in five different decades, grow up in five stories of the same building on the Lower East Side of New York City. Jenny Epstein and her family arrive on a steamship from Russia in the 1910s. Jenny writes letters in Yiddish to her grandmother, while practicing her English in her new neighborhood. By the 1930s, when Anna Cozzi and her Italian family move into the building, Jenny has become a teacher in Anna’s school, and we continue to follow generations of different children. Perfect for early elementary students, this book celebrates the many diverse cultures that make up our nation—from the food we eat, to the families we love. Join us to celebrate with a special story time with Ellen!
