Illustrated by Yoko Matsuoka, the children's book spotlights Broadway Baby, who dreams of becoming a Broadway star. Those dreams take readers on a theatrical journey from his crib to the playground to the heart of New York City, with nods to many elements that make live theatre so special. Released by Meteor 17 Books, Broadway Baby is on book shelves now.

Tickets for the online event, which are $25 and include an author-signed copy of the book, can be purchased here. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
