Uptown Lit: A Festival of Readers and Writers

 Uptown Lit: A Festival of Readers and Writers  sponsored by Washington Heights Literary Council presents literacy workshops for adults,teens and children tomorrow at United Palace from 10am-6pm.  Of special interest to our readers, the family programing for this  event is sponsored by  Reach Out and Read and Literacy, Inc.  and Word-up Community Bookshop. The literacy activities for families include, interactive storytelling   by authors, arts and crafts, and a special book making workshop presented by Skraptacular (the folks that make art from scraps and  found objects.)   Lynn Joseph author of "Coconut Kind of Day" will read from her book.  Artist Laura James will personally talk to your young artists about the   process involved in illustrating a children's book.  I have only mentioned  two of the many authors and new books that your family will enjoy and discover. Make it a point to go uptown and share this enriching event with your children.  And read to your kids everyday.
