On Saturday, December 5, Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum held its annual ‘Holiday Family: A Storybook Christmas’ event. The event featured a special appearance from Sonia Manzano, who played Maria on Sesame Street for 44 years. Manzano read and signed copies at the storybook reading of her new children’s book, ‘Miracle on 133rd Street’, which was released last September by publisher Simon & Schuster.
