The second offering in Bay Street Theater’s “Story Time,” a new series of eight children’s books read aloud on Zoom by the authors themselves, will feature Theresa Trinder reading her book “There Is A Rainbow,” published by Chronicle Books, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 3.
In a previous life, Trinder made books and gifts for Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, Missouri, created literacy curricula in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and did all sorts of things in between. She earned an MFA in poetry from Emerson College. She is a Long Island resident and cares for her two boys full-time.
Offered every Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m., other authors in the “Story Time” series will include Dan Sadlowski reading “Finding Brooklyn — And The Next Great Superhero” on April 10; Hyewon Yum reading “Grandpa Across The Ocean” on April 17; Susan Verde reading “I Am Yoga” on April 24; Linsey Davis reading “Stay This Way Forever” on May 1; Scott Rothman reading “Attack of the Underwear Dragon” on May 8; and finally, Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton, reading “Simeon’s Gift” on May 15.
Parents are encouraged to purchase the books in advance so their child can read along with the authors. The series is designed for kids ages 3 to 8 and following each reading, authors will be available for a question-and-answer session with participants. Tickets for the “Story Time” series are $15 for individual tickets. Visit baystreet.org or call the box office, 631-725-9500 to purchase.
Story Time is sponsored by BookHampton, Canio’s Books, Michael Hebron, RJ Julia Booksellers, and Sag Harbor Books.
