Left Bank Books welcomes Newbery Medalist and bestselling children’s author Katherine Applegate, who will sign and read from her new picture book, “Sometimes You Fly”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Sometimes You Fly” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

This gorgeous gift book, equally perfect for preschool graduations or college commencements, baby showers or birthdays, is an inspirational tribute to the universal struggles and achievements of childhood. Beginning with a first birthday, the scenes travel through childhood triumphs and milestones, coming full circle to graduation. A magical blend of succinct text and beautiful watercolors renders each moment with tenderness and humor and encourages readers to “remember then, with every try, sometimes you fail . . . sometimes you fly.”
