April Children’s Day, Book Day celebrations can be found in many different places–here are two examples happening this month:
ELLAchattanooga is a community arts organization in East Lake, Chattanooga, TN who has an annual Book Fiesta. This year’s event will be on Saturday, April 14 from 1-4. Inspired by Pat’s Book Fiesta, they set out to bring her book to life in East Lake Park, inviting the whole neighborhood out to read, play and create in English & Spanish! Enjoy this video of last year’s celebration:
2002 Mora Award winner Multnomah County Library (OR) has been celebrating Día since 1998, thanks to Spanish Outreach Program Specialist Senior Ana Ruiz Morillo and the “We Speak Your Language” Group. For the three events comprising this year’s celebration, the library partnered with The Library Foundation, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, US Bank Foundation and Honl Tree Care. The celebration will take place on the last three Saturdays in April, at three different branches of the library.
