Special Event

Saturday Story with Selina Alko

June 02, 2018 |
11:00 am to 1:00 pm

Presenting a monthly illustrator-led, read-aloud, hands-on workshop, and book-signing series. Guest illustrators and Society staff will lead participants in a fun story hour and related hands-on workshop for children and their adult companions. 

In conjunction with our current exhibition The Art of MARCH: A Civil Rights Masterpiece, the series From April - June will focus on books written for younger audiences about civil and human rights. The target age for each workshop is based on the book of focus for the day. See full schedule here

This Saturday, enjoy a reading of "Why Am I Me?" with artist Selina Alko (for ages 4 - 8 years old).

About the book: 
Presented as a thoughtful, poetic exchange between two characters -- who don't realize they are thinking and asking the very same questions -- this beautiful celebration of our humanity and diversity invites readers of all ages to imagine a world where there is no you or me, only we.

If the first step toward healing the world is to build bridges of empathy and celebrate rather than discriminate, Why Am I Me? helps foster a much-needed sense of connection, compassion, and love.

Tickets:
$25 per adult with one child; additional children $10 each. 
 
Books available to purchase in the Museum Shop. 
"Why Am I Me?" with art by Selina Alko.
