Join us as we celebrate reading!
Reading opens the creativity and imagination of each child who holds a book.
Our first event hosted over 200 people and we are looking for an even greater turnout for September! Get in on the movement…
HEY! Let's Read Book Festival! will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 10am — 2pm is a day filled with activities and resources for children of Color. In addition to books available for purchase from local authors and giveaways that feature our children as the protagonists and main characters, there will be opportunities to foster a love of reading and learning!
Food vendors will be available, along with face painting, music & entertainment, storytelling and raffles! Local Authors and vendors will be present to help you select the perfect picks for your child's summer reading list during this festive time of entertainment, storytelling, and books!
A great, FREE, family friendly event. Stay tuned as we update the list of authors and vendors!
