Grab and Go Kids Planner: Dance, Books, Music and Movies

Hear a Cupertino author speak about his book, see a student dance recital, see a movie and enjoy a free concert in the park.

Each week Cupertino Patch selects five events for you and your children to enjoy in, or nearby, Cupertino. Here are this week's picks:

Where/When: , 21250 Stevens Creek Blvd.; Saturday, 7 p.m.

Pricing: $20

Where/When:  Barnes & Noble Booksellers,  3600 Stevens Creek Blvd. San Jose, Saturday, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Why Go: A.R. Silverberry is one of our own—he lives in Cupertino, but on this day he will be presenting his new children's fantasy novel, Wyndano's Cloak at San Jose's Barnes & Noble Booksellers.
