Story Time: Shira Erlichman presents Be/Hold: A Friendship Book
In her debut picture book, visual artist, poet, musician, and friend of Greenlight Shira Erlichman opens with the line, “Sweetheart, sometimes when I’m feeling blue I put my ear to the wind & listen for you.” Shira builds a one-of-a-kind story of friendship from her love of compound words (i.e. toothbrush, windbreaker, behold) in a book that uplifts, encourages, and honors the people we care about most. Greenlight is thrilled to host Shira, a longtime friend of the bookstore, for a story time event featuring a reading, singalong and some compound word snacks! Ages 3 to 8.
