Power Forward Zayd Saleem, Chasing the Dream #1 book cover

As part of our Children's Book Week celebrations, we will host Hena Khan as she presents her newest book published by the Salaam Reads imprint of Simon & Schuster. The event is free and open to the public. Event consists of a short presentation followed by an audience Q&A, which is a great time for kids to ask questions about the series or writing in general. Afterwords, Hena will sign books.

Avid fans are welcome to bring copies of books they have from home; however, please remember that you can only get this live and in-person experience from Once Upon A Time Bookstore. 

BEST GIFT IDEA!  If you are not able to make it to the event but would like a book signed please, order below at least 24 hours before the event and put in the order comments if you would like Hena to personalize with a name or school. You can also call at (818) 248-9668. 

Please keep your receipts as we will be checking for proof of purchase before you enter the signing line. 

About the book: The first book in an exciting new chapter book series (Zayd Saleem, Chasing the Dream) about a scrawny fourth-grader with big dreams of basketball stardom. Zayd yearns to play basketball on the Gold Team, but when he skips orchestra rehearsal to practice, his parents forbid anything basketball-related, and tryouts are coming soon.

A fun new graphic novel for fans of The Witch Boy that follows a young girl who discovers she is a witch in the modern day. But her town has a centuries-long history of  anger, resentment, and fear of these independent women with magical powers. But the witch community may not be as welcoming when compared to the town. This story looks at how to relate to history and family in a fun new way. And don't forget the talking fat black cat! - Jessica
