In case you're a little burnt from fashion week (it happens to the best of us), check in with your inner child this evening c/o children's book illustrator and artist David Foote. Get your fantasy pants on and head to the historic Rizzoli Bookstore tonight for the release and book-signing of Modern Fairies, Dwarves, Goblins & Other Nasties, written by Lesley M. M. Blume.
