Oliver Gee and Lina Nordin Gee reading “Kylie the Crocodile in Paris” (ages 3–9) [Virtual Event, Library members only; RSVP Required]

May 6 @ 17 h 00 min - 18 h 00 min

For ages 3–9

CLICK HERE TO RSVP.

3–9 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a reading with author Oliver Gee and illustrator Lina Nordin Gee as they read their new picture book Kylie the Crocodile in Paris. Following the reading, Lina will show participants how to draw a crocodile and then the pair will answer questions about what inspired this “absolutely true story.”

This live, interactive virtual event will be hosted on Zoom. Library programs are created to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Plan to join in, as you would do in one of our in-person events. We will keep microphones muted during the reading and art demonstration, then participating children will be encouraged to turn on their microphones and ask questions during the Q&A portion of the event.
