Join us for a special storytime at Book Culture LIC with Joshua David Stein, author of Brick: Who Found Herself in Architecture, on Saturday, September 15th at 11:30am.

A young brick goes on a journey to find her place in the world by visiting ten celebrated brick structures around the globe

When Brick was just a baby, tall buildings amazed her. Her mother said, "Great things begin with small bricks. Look around and you'll see."

Brick's observations begin at home and then extend globally as she travels to a diverse list of brick structures ? Malbork Castle in Poland, Mahabodhi Buddhist Temple in India, Grosvenor Estate apartments in England, and more ? all the while pondering where she may end up. With a tender and timeless text by Joshua David Stein and architectural line art by Julia Rothman, this tribute to becoming part of something greater serves children and adults alike.


Joshua David Stein frequently contributes to New York magazine, the New York Times, the Sunday Times, Eater, and Fatherly as a food critic, and film and culture columnist. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two sons.
