Please join us THIS Thursday, May 5, at 7 p.m., for a pre-Mother's Day treat as award-winning Berkeley, Calif. storyteller Patricia Bulitt performs her signature tale, How My Grandmother Found a Story on a Plate.The program is sponsored by the Takoma Park Maryland Library (101 Philadelphia Ave. in Takoma Park, Md.), but will take place in the Azalea Room in the Takoma Park Community Center (connected to the Library).
The program begins with Patricia leading the audience in a "talking sticks" exercise designed to open everyone's imaginations and get them ready to listen to her compelling story about the story her grandmother found on a plate hanging on her kitchen wall.
Our program will conclude with a craft in which everyone will be able to make their own "story plates," using paper plates and art supplies. These plates will make a perfect and unique Mother's Day gift for children to make for the special women in their lives, but adults also are encouraged to create their own story plates.
The program is best for children ages 4 up; adults are most welcome as well. Registration encouraged, but not required. If you want to register, please go to Program Registration - Takoma Park Maryland Library or call us at 301-891-7259.Posted by at May 3, 2011 06:26 PM
