It’s a series of fortunate events when the Brooklyn Museum hosts a children’s book fair and a performance of Lemony Snicket’s “The Composer is Dead” by the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music.
At the book fair children will enjoy meeting their favorite local authors and illustrators, getting a drawing session with Mike Herrod from Comics to Go, and meeting the orchestra. Then, the whole family can solve a mystery and laugh till they cry at the cutting-edge performance featuring text by Lemony Snicket and music by Nathaniel Stookey. The concert is recommended for children ages 5 and older.
Book fair on Nov. 17, noon to 4 pm with concert immediately following at 4 pm. Admission is $15, $10 for children under 12.
