Banned Book Party with Special Guest: Raj Haldar
Dress up as your favorite banned book character for our Annual Banned Book Party with Special Guest: Raj Haldar!
This night is a celebration for the books that people want off the shelves because they speak the truth, make people think, and go against what they consider to be "normal" (insert eye roll). At Second Star we support banned books, banned authors, and the folks who want to read these books. On October 5 join us for a storytime with author, Raj Haldar, fun activities, and food and drinks.
We hope you can make it!

ABOUT RAJ HALDAR:
Author of the #1New York Times Bestselling picture book, P is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever. But, for close to a decade, he has been better known as Lushlife, the rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. In that time, he's amassed a fervent global fan base and released award-winning viral music videos that highlight his erudite lyrics. The Sunday New York Times describes his work as “an intoxicating mix of captivating rhymes with audacious, gorgeous production.” So it should come as no surprise that Haldar has made the leap into the world of children’s literature. His latest book entitled, This Book is Banned gives young readers a lighthearted entry point to begin understanding the dangers of book banning and censorship. Raj currently lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with his wife and two young daughters.
