Kids! Stories and crafts with the authors of The Forever Sky and Grasshopper Girl

Sunday, June 23rd @ 11am-1pm
ARTrageous Adventures (near Birchbark Books)

Join us this Sunday for storytelling and art making with the authors of two great books for children. Thomas Peacock will be presenting The Forever Sky. One night, a beautiful show of lights fills the sky. Niigaanii explains that the northern lights are the spirits of the relatives who have passed on. The boys imagine different relatives dancing, lighting up the sky with their graceful movements. Teresa Peterson will be sharing Grasshopper Girl. Young Psipsi loves to jump around like a grasshopper. But now she is sick in bed with aching legs. She starts feeling better as her uncle lulls her to sleep with an old Dakota trickster tale. Listen to the stories and then make some art inspired by the books!
