"There are still some people out on the streets,
driving this and that, heading from here to there.
They might be family, friends, or strangers.
They're there because we need them.
They're the people keeping the city going."
Join us online for a behind-the-scenes look at Keeping the City Going, Brian Floca’s beautiful new picture book that pays tribute to the essential workers, including public transit workers, who have been helping New Yorkers through the past year. Listen to parts of the story as Floca shares his process, including sketches and neighborhood photos, for creating this touching snapshot of an unprecedented time.
Brian Floca is the author and illustrator of numerous acclaimed children's books, including Locomotive, winner of the 2014 Caldecott Medal, Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11, Lightship, and The Racecar Alphabet.
