Join the Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday, October 11 for one of its many family-friendly events: a musical event based on the multi-award winning book “The Monster Who Ate My Peas.”

ArtPower’s newest musical, based on the original book written by Danny Schnitzlein and illustrated by Matthew Faulkner, tells the hilarious story of a young boy who doesn’t want to eat his peas. When a crafty monster appears underneath his kitchen table, the boy is ready to make a deal.

The free musical performance, presented by ArtsPower, will take place in the Central Library’s Dweck Center, located at 10 Grand Army Plaza at 1 p.m. For more information, visit

Three-time winners of the Amateur Night at the Apollo, the classically trained violin duo inspires young people to get fired up about classical music with its unique fusion of classical, hip-hop, jazz, blues and R&B.

This particular performance is recommended for ages eight and up. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at or by calling the box office (open Tuesday through Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m.) at 718-951-4500.
