    This event takes place in our Jersey City store.

    Join us at WORD for storytime with Absurdimals: Lola Goes to School, with author Gwendolyn Javor. 

    Absurdimals is the first in a series of children's books about a group of hybrid animals who represent the diverse, changing faces of society and empower kids to embrace individuality. 


    Gwendolyn Javor was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. After attending university and law school in New York City, she realized that practicing was not her life's purpose. Instead, she began working on projects focused on promoting love and acceptance of individuality. The idea of helping others learn to cherish their uniqueness became her passion that soon developed into a mission. Inspired by paintings she made in high school, she saw an opportunity to share her message with children; and so, the Absurdimals were born.
