What would a Museum of Motherhood-sponsored Mother’s Day reading be without humor, inspiration, art, or creativity? Luckily, we will never have to find out, because our Barnes and Noble event on Sunday, May 10 will feature readings from Katharine Holabird of the famed Angelina Ballerina children’s series and Susan Konig, the author of several books and essays that draw from her experience as a mother. Katharine will open our special Mother’s Day event with a reading at the Upper West Side Barnes and Noble (82nd St. and Broadway) from 1-2PM, followed by a reading from Susan Konig out of her new book Teenagers and Toddlers Are Trying to Kill Me from 2-3PM. Book lovers can support the Museum of Motherhood from May 6-15 by shopping the Museum of Motherhood book fair online at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/bookfairs/. Enter the code of 11455805 at checkout to see a portion of the sale benefit the museum.
