Children’s Book Week Celebration

May 6 @ 12:00 pm-4:00 pm


Children’s literature is one of the first ways in which storytelling makes an impact in young humans’ lives, teaching them about the world they live in and the power of their own imagination, and celebrating what makes us all both similar and unique. Join the Minnesota Humanities Center for a celebration on the lawn honoring Children’s Book Week, with guest author readings, book art workshops, story walks, games, crafts, book sales, food trucks, and special giveaways. Authors and and book illustrators joining include Diane Wilson, Sun Yung Shin 신 선 영, Shannon Gibney, John Coy, Marian Hassan, Magdalena Mora, Remona Htoo, Hudda Ibrahim, and Dr. Artika Tyner. ARTrageous will also be setting up a Creation Station for kids and kids at heart to make their own books and bookmarks.

Full lineup and schedule announced soon. In partnership with Diverse Reads and AMPACT.
