"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
CORONA—Home Gardens Library is launching a series of multicultural book-based programs for children and parents. Books, craft materials, and snacks will be distributed to the participants and appropriate social distancing precautions will be observed.
On October 6, Jolinda Curtin, a reading specialist and retired teacher, will be reading and discussing “Dreamers” by Yuyi Morales. The book is a celebration of making your home with the things you always carry: your resilience, your dreams, your hopes and history and why our stories need to be recorded in a book. Each participant will get a journal kit with a handmade Memory Bag, a blank journal, pencil, and markers. Kathyrn Duncan, an artist, will show participants how to jazz up their journal with art, while Ms. Jolinda will teach them how to journal. This event will be 90 minutes long from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm. Please bring a few meaningful memorabilia along with a picture that you can cut to fit the bag!
