92Y Tribeca, “When We Were Free to Be Book” Launch Event

We’re so grateful to the 92Y Tribeca for hosting our book launch event! We screened video clips of “Parents are People,” “William’s Doll,” and “When We Grow Up” and discussed them with six of our book’s contributors: Stephen Lawrence, Carole Hart, Robin Pogrebin, Deesha Philyaw, Karl Bryant, and Cheryl Kilodavis.

Our audience included many friends, supporters, and contributors, including Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Barbara Sprung, Abigail Pogrebin, David Pogrebin, Becky Friedman, Francine Klagsbrun, Emily Kingsley, members of the Children’s Media Association, and “Free to Be” fans from NYC and the surrounding suburbs. Tie-dyed mini cupcakes topped off the evening.

One member of the audience, Michael Richardson, wrote a detailed post about the event, including the Q & A, for the Children’s Media Association blog here.
