ONLINE: Bedtime Story w/ the Author: Julia Denos "Starcrossed"
Kids, don your jammies and join us for a Bedtime Story with the author/illustrator herself! Julia Denos reads Starcrossed, a resonant story of two friends trying to maintain their relationship from afar with dazzling results, filled with wishes, curiosity, and bravery.
ABOUT THE BOOK
She was made of blood and bones, and he was made of space and stars.
Back in a time when there were still students of the stars, there were two friends, Acamar and Eridani.
Eridani was a star pupil studying the night skies, and Acamar . . . well, he was made of the stuff she studied.
In a star-crossed twist of fate, these long-distance friends find they’ve wished themselves into unexpected new worlds.
Filled with stardust and moonglow, this cosmic adventure shows us how even the most brilliant wishes can have a mind of their own—and that true friendship can endure, despite time and space.
