Story Time: Katie Yamasaki presents Everything Naomi Loved

Brooklyn-based muralist and Greenlight neighbor Katie Yamasaki returns to the bookstore (virtually!) to share her lastest picture book, Everything Naomi Loved. Naomi spends her afternoons scooting down the streets of her neighborhood with friends and dreaming of fantastic worlds within her own. But her beloved neighborhood is changing. Trees are chopped down, flashy new buildings spring up, and one by one Naomi’s neighbors are forced to move away. Faced with the rapid transformation of her once-familiar city block, Naomi turns to painting murals to preserve her favorite 11th Street memories. Through her mural painting, Naomi discovers that no matter how her world changes, as long as she has places and people to love, she will always have a home. This richly crafted portrayal of community and friendship is an ode to those most affected by changing cities. Join Yamasaki for an imaginative and moving virtual story time!
