Selina Alko Visits Northside on May 4th!

Selina Alko will visit Williamsburg Northside on May 4th to read her beloved picture books and talk about her life as a writer and illustrator.

You can order copies of Selina's books through Greenlight Bookstore! Orders must be placed by April 24th. Selina will sign your books after her presentation and students can pick them up at the end of the day. Click on the books below to order.


1) The online ordering option for author signing and school pickup is open through April 24th only! Online orders placed after April 24th cannot be picked up at the school; such orders will be treated as regular orders and can be picked up in the store or shipped.

2) At checkout, choose the options "Pick up in store" and "Pay online". This will mean you do not need to pay for shipping (books will be delivered to the school for you). Orders MUST be paid for online in order to be fulfilled.

3) At checkout, you MUST note "Selina Alko - Williamsburg Northside" in the Order Comments to make sure your order is processed correctly.  Please also note any personalization request (i.e. "to Mary", "Happy Birthday George", etc.)

4) Only the titles on the list below are eligible for pickup at the author visit. Orders for other titles can be processed for store pickup or shipping but cannot be picked up at the school.
