This event is a celebration of National Library Week, where Meg will share her new book No More Señora Mimí and engage in a conversation with New York Public Library children's librarian, Angelina Anzalone, about the importance of storytelling and the vital role that libraries play in communities. Additionally, we will have a brief presentation from Children in Crisis, where they will speak on the support they have been providing to children detained at the border.
