our next children's event

Tuesday, November 25, 10:30 am

Nate Foster is back and his Broadway dreams are on the verge of coming true. Upon disembarking from his one-way trip to the Big Apple, however, he quickly finds that things aren’t quite as rosy as he imagined. From grueling rehearsals to a director who can’t remember Nate’s name, the obstacles between him and his star-spangled opening night are piling up. With the same wit readers enjoyed in Nate’s first outing, he stands up to adversity and holds out for a showbiz miracle. Ages 10 – 14 (Simon & Schuster)
