Partnering with Read With Me, a new local children's bookstore, AFAR is hosting Civic Kids' Story Hour on a bi-monthly schedule! During this hour, a local government official or political candidate will read to our children on a variety of progressive topics such as equal rights, the environment, and justice. Kids will also participate in an activity relative to the hour's topic. The hour will be designed for ages 3-7. Find the information below for our very first story hour and we hope you will join us. If you can't make the event, definitely stop by this amazing new book store!
