There’s nothing like a good story to get the imagination working. Join The Queens Bookshop Initiative every third Saturday from June through September for Storytime in the Park! They will begin with traditional storytime, reading children’s books that explore the joy of art and creativity, with some even written by local Queens authors. Then, everyone gets a chance to be an author or an illustrator by participating in Interactive Storytime, where they’ll get you started, but the adventure is up to you.
FREE. NO RSVP REQUIRED.
