As long as stories have been told, people have been telling stories about stars and the constellations they make. Now it’s author and artist Julia Denos’s turn to imagine a story set amid the patterns in the night sky. Join us for an “out of this world” storytime celebrating outer space as part of World Space Week as Denos reads from Starcrossed, her picture book about a star-crossed friendship between a human girl and a constellation of a boy and shares her inspiration for her beautiful artwork. Tune in live for your chance to ask questions and interact with the author! All donations collected in conjunction with this session will go to the Boston Globe's Globe Santa program.
