Lit Arts

The Avenue is one of the most lit literary spaces you'll encounter. We find engaging, culturally responsive ways to encourage literacy in our community! We get lit!

2ND SUNDAY STORIES & STUFF + GET LIT @ THE AVE

WHAT TO EXPECT:
A lively interactive family and community literacy event for all readers ages! Families and reading buddies will enjoy bonding together over beautifully written and read cultural stories and fun folktales performed by professional storytellers! This lively event for all ages includes an art project and sometimes, weather permitting -- a lively parade down the Joseph Ave sidewalk to the Lincoln Library where we "Get Lit" with our instruments and positive chants in the parking lot!

MAY PROGRAM:
Our featured children's book is BORN READY:THE TRUE STORY OF A BOY NAMED PENELOPE BY JODI PATTERSON! PLUS, thanks to our generous Book Angel, Rochester Area Community Foundation's 50 Anniversary Gifts for Good we have a gift for Mom or the adult caregivers present; THE BOLD WORLD also by JODI PATTERSON. We've also arranged a photographer to offer a complimentary Mother's Day professional photoshoot to the first 10 families to register!

So much fun and totally FREE -- just bring a smile, sense of adventure, warm heart, and your listening ears! Healthy snacks provided through our partnership with Foodlink and the Avenue Children's Theater (A.C.T.) Healthy Living Initiative.
FREE ADMISSION. RSVP & masks required for all.

*This program is supported by the Leah Lozano Memorial Endowment for the Avenue Children's Theatre Project, LGBT+ Giving Circle, Rochester Area Community Foundation, the Avenue OWLs and book angels, and private donors like you. Thank you!
