Sunday: Author Of The Yellow Umbrella Children’s Book To Do Free Reading, Signing


Bruce Dunn, the author of the award-winning children’s book The Yellow Umbrella: A City Fable, is coming to Sheepshead Bay on Sunday for a free book reading and signing.

The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 19, at Brainy Academy (1733 Sheepshead Bay Road). The event is open to the public and free of charge, aimed at children ages 7 and up. You must RSVP by e-mailing [email protected]

The Yellow Umbrella has been hailed as children’s book with a “poignancy at a depth deeper than most children’s book,” following one personified yellow umbrella, lost by its original owner, as it travels from one person to another, squelching loneliness and finding joy in service to others.

Would it be weird to show up to a children’s book reading as a single adult? Probably. But I might go anyway.
