Award-Winning Illustrator Charles Santore, Jr. at the Free Library

December 16, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In December of 2017, Santore Friends will be initiating a new speaker series. Notable individuals who have enriched our community in many ways will be appearing at the Charles Santore Library to share their ideas and inspiring personal stories. The first of these speakers will be Charles Santore, Jr., the son and namesake of the famous Philadelphian for whom the library was renamed in 2004.

Mr. Santore will appear at the Library, located at 7th and Carpenter Streets, on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 3:00 PM. He will be signing copies of The Wizard of Oz, his famous rendition of The Night Before Christmas , and his new edition of Alice in Wonderland (released in October). Book sale proceeds will directly benefit the Library and its programs. Queen Vill age’s Head House Books will be on hand to sell copies of Charles Santore’s wonderful books, which would make much appreciated and timeless gifts for the Holidays. Head House Books is pleased to share the proceeds of the sales of Mr. Santore’s signed books with the Charles Santore Library.
