|Story Time with Christopher Smith|
Sunday Mornings at 11:00 am at Book Passage in Corte Madera
(during the school year, except holiday weekends)
Smith has been writing acoustic music and performing in
the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years. Smith writes well-crafted
story songs that aim for the heart. Fusing elements of humor and
sadness, his songs feature characters that are quirky, vulnerable and
unforgettable. His music is primarily based in the folk tradition,
accompanying himself on fingerstyle guitar, octave mandolin, and banjo.
Smith is especially popular with toddlers, preschoolers, and
kindergarteners. However, all ages (including adults) love him.
Encouraging the love of reading for all ages!
Passage showcases an excellent inventory of children's books in the
Children's Nook at our flagship Corte Madera store. We also stock a
concise, but hand-picked, selection at our San Francisco Ferry Building
store, too. Our Children's Book Buyer Susan Kundhardt is an
excellent resource for helping you choose the right title for a
particular child based on the child's age and interests. And, our Book Fairs Coordinator Sue Campbell can help you organize an excellent book fair for your school or organization!
Book Passage schedules a variety of programming for children and young
adults of all ages, including author events, school book fairs,
storytime, classes and workshops, and special celebrations for book
launches. We've hosted Harry Potter celebrations, Lemony Snicket performing with a rock band, Fancy Nancy
dress up parties, and we regularly host school students at our Corte
Madera store for special events with authors and illustrators.
Passage is dedicated to young readers and parents, as well as authors
and illustrators of children's and young adult literature. We are lucky
to have such a vibrant community of children's and YA writers and
illustrators right here in the Bay Area! In fact, we host the annual Children's Writers & Illustrators Conference,
which boasts a prize-winning faculty of amazing writers and
illustrators from across the country, and right here in our own
