ASL-SIGNED STORYTIME: 11 am at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village, Melissa tells us: “For the first time, we’ll be having an ASL-signed storytime! I’ll be reading ‘If You Give a Mouse a Cookie’ while one of our fabulous booksellers signs along with me! Should be a fun way to spend what will be a cloudy, cool morning! At 11 am in the Kids Department, as always.” (2600 SW Barton)
