Presidents Day Author Visit!

Elliott Kaufman, photographer, in the NYSCI Library, February 17, 2014.
Our library visitors learned to look at the world in a new way; recognizing letters and numbers every where they go!

Elliott engaged our audience with numbers and letters from his books, NUMBERS EVERYWHERE and ALPHABET EVERYWHERE.
Who is seven? he asked. He handed them photos of the number 7 that he has found in architecture and other places.
Who’s name starts with a B (or C or D)? 

This was a different sort of visit than our usual straight forward author visit.  He did not read a story or talk about writing children’s books.  He engaged the audience in visual fun.  They eagerly responded.  Thank you Elliot!  And thanks to Abbeville Press for making this happen and supporting our promotions.
