Children's Books & Fairs

Story Time with Christopher Smith

Sunday Mornings at 11:00 am at Book Passage in Corte Madera
(during the school year, except holiday weekends)
Christopher Smith
Singer-songwriter, Christopher 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!

Book 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.

Book 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 backyard.
