EVENTS: BKPNY an allied organization of SANDIWA event on OCT 3 for Typhoon Ondoy


In partnership with the New York Book Fair Expo, BKPNY presents “A Family Affair 2”, a book drive and fundraising event designed for the whole family, at the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, New York – Saturday, October 3, 2009 from 11 am to 5 pm.

There will be book readings, arts & crafts activities, and games. Featured readers include Sahar Williams and Grace Chang. Both authors will read excerpts from their recent publications. A suggested donation of $5 will entitle you to participate in any of our Arts & crafts activities: face painting, bookmark making, cupcake decorating, and bracelet-weaving. The afternoon will also include modest folk games from around the world.

Please support our efforts by attending, donating books, spreading the word, reposting the event page on your social-network page (facebook, myspace, twitter, etc). Any of the above would be greatly appreciated.

Free Shuttle Trolley will take guests to and from the Queens Museum of Art area to the 7 Train Station Willets Point/Citi Field stop. Trolley will run from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm every 30 minutes.

  1. I am coordinating a global group of international students to organize donation drives, drop-off efforts and creating awareness. My facebook group is visited by more than 500 international people and my group is updating it with efforts that are relevant to their locations. It would be great if you can update us in your efforts, even better if you can post your activities in the relevant discussion threads in our site as well. What you’re doing is great!

    Let’s unite to help our country.
