Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters will perform and sign copies of her new children's book, Stella is a Star, at Dylan's Candy Bar (1011 3rd Avenue at 60th Street) on Monday, May 3 at 3pm.

The book, which arrives in bookstores the same day, is accompanied by an audio CD featuring a reading of the story along with an original song "Stella's Song" written, composed and performed by Peters. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefits Broadway Barks and goes toward saving the lives of animals in shelters and raising awareness about the beauty of adoption.

Peters won Tony Awards for her work in Annie Get Your Gun and Song & Dance. Her many Broadway credits include Gypsy, Sunday in the Park With George, Into the Woods, and The Goodbye Girl. She is also the author of the book Broadway Barks.
