Here we go, another day full of events:

For the kids: Caldecott Medal winning author David Wiesner will be at the Central branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia as a part of Children’s Book Week for a reading and presentation on his book, Mr. Wuffles at 10:30 a.m.

For those who’d like a spot of tea: Tour Ardrossan Estate in Villanova, PA at 2 p.m. and get treated to an afternoon of tea and champagne in the estate’s formal dining room.

For “nerds” who like to party: Local publisher The Head & The Hand Press will celebrate the release of their latest anthology, The Asteroid Belt Almanac at Indy Hall at 7 p.m. Guests can pick up a copy of the book, hear readings from Chris Wink, Technical.ly Philly and Philly Tech Week cofounder, Eric Smith, "Geek's Guide to Dating" author and Geekadelphia founder and others as well as bust a move at the dance party.

For stargazers: No matter what your astronomical skill level, if you have an interest in the galaxies, the doors are open at the Rittenhouse Astronomical Society. They’re holding a meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Franklin Institute.

For the nautical type: Instead of turning into a werewolf come the full moon, the Cape May Lighthouse in Cape May, NJ keeps their doors open later for the full moon lighthouse climb. Come between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. to take a look at the view.
