Chaya Raichik, who owns the popular anti-woke Twitter account, advertised her own story hour event this weekend that she said will be just right down the street.
“Protect your kids and come hear an important message at an event that’s actually family friendly,” said a tweet on Wednesday.
Brave Books CEO Trent Talbot will join Raichik over the same four-hour period that James is hosting her event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and their respective books will be featured, according to the eventbrite page.
Raichik’s book, “No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern,” is being advertised as a conservative tale that promises to be “a modern twist to the familiar Grimm’s-style fairy tale, even including a big bad wolf.” Talbot has a book titled “Fight For Freedom Island.”
James, who has been spearheading a high-profile civil investigation into former President Donald Trump’s business empire, recently announced that she is hosting a “Drag Queen Story” event in Manhattan on Sunday.
“Families with children” were specifically invited in a flyer she posted to Instagram. James said drag storytellers, community leaders, and elected officials would be in attendance.

A number of bills have been introduced in states across the country to prevent minors from being able to attend drag performances as “Drag Story Hour” events in particular became a focus of criticism.
Among those who chastised James for hosting such an event was Raichik herself.
“Our tax dollars are being used by government officials to fund and promote the sexualization of our children,” she tweeted.
