On Monday, May 3, Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters joined a crowd of children at Dylan's Candy Bar to sign copies of her new children's book, Stella is a Star. Peters was joined by the book's illustrator, Liz Murphy.

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," which was written by Peters. She sang the tune at the event.

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.
