Storytime with Sara Arnold, THE BIG BUNA BASH

Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 11:30am

East City Bookshop welcomes Sara Arnold for a storytime with her picture book, The Big Buna Bash.

About The Big Buna Bash:

When Almaz makes a mistake in school, she's really embarrassed. Other kids tease her because they don't understand her Ethiopian culture. How can she use her family's traditions to make friends? She needs to host a BIG BUNA BASH!

Sara Arnold is just a woman who loves coffee, especially buna! Born in the U.S., Sara immigrated to Israel in 1981, and she now teaches English in Jerusalem. She hopes this book will encourage children to understand and respect people different from themselves. Big Buna Bash is Sara’s first publication. Visit Sara online at
