On Tuesday I traveled out to PS 292 in East New York to visit and share my new book MELVIN AND THE BOY with the adorable kids at the Gary Klinsky Children's Center. GKCC is an absolutely fantastic program, funded by Brooklyn Community Services (BCS) non-profit organization, that provides learning opportunities to children from low-income families who attend some of New York City's lowest performing schools (For more information, please check out their website). The children are currently studying marine biology and ecology, so it was the perfect time to introduce them to Melvin and his friends~
"You live in Brooklyn too?? Ohh, I thought you lived in a museum."
