Children's author and award-winning actress Julianne Moore reading her new book with a child at a community center in Harlem to celebrate the start of a new school year.

Moore read from her new book, 'My Mom is a Foreigner, But Not to Me' to pre-K students and their parents, and gave each participating child a signed copy of the book.
