Join author Marcelo Hernandez Castillo for a reading of Yuyi Morales’ picture book Dreamers. The reading will be followed by an opportunity for community members to share their own immigration stories and dreams. Kids will learn how to make tissue paper flowers inspired by Dreamers. Craft supplies will be available for pickup one week prior to the event.
Join us as you are able:
12:05-12:20 Reading of Dreamers
12:5-1:30 Community Roundtable Discussion
Registration is required. Please sign up for the number of craft kits you would like to receive. Registrants will receive a zoom link one hour before the program. Supplies will be available for pick up the week prior to the program. Registrants will be contacted via email to arrange pick up of supplies.
