October 23, 2023: Nothing Else But Miracles by Kate Albus
As a continuation of the Seaport Museum’s free Nothing Else But Miracles Book Launch celebration earlier this month, on October 10 at 6:30pm, we are also featuring this new publication for the October Seaport Museum Book Club! You do not have to attend the book launch to participate in the book club.
Based on real locations in old New York and set in the final year of World War II, this work, geared for audiences ages 9–12, explores the engaging story of 12-year-old Dory Byrne who lives with her brothers, Fish and Pike, on New York City’s Lower East Side. This work has special ties to the Seaport Museum and shows how, when things get tough, the neighborhood can give you what you need.
Nothing Else But Miracles is available for purchase at most bookstores. Register for the October meeting of the Seaport Museum Book Club today to receive a 10% off discount code for online orders of the book at McNally Jackson Books.
