12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The art environment Isaiah Zagar created at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is different in many ways from other art museums. In My Cousin Momo by Zachariah OHora the characters learn that different can be good. Make a kaleidoscope with teaching artist Brittany Walker to see things in new ways, and then listen to a reading of My Cousin Momo, the children’s selection for One Book, One Philadelphia.
Readings of My Cousin Momo will happen at 12:30 and 2:30 PM. Family-friendly tours will be held at 1:00 and 3:00 PM.
PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between NOON and 4:00 PM. All PECO Family Jams workshops and activities are FREE with admission.
This event is part of One Book, One Philadelphia, a signature program of the Free Library of Philadelphia that promotes literacy, library usage, and citywide conversation by encouraging the Philadelphia area to come together through reading and discussing a single book. The 2017 featured selection is Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
