This is a virtual event.

Join us for a virtual, bilingual HOME Story Time from the comfort of your home. HOME Story Time features children’s books written or illustrated by authors, illustrators, and artists who have faced forced displacement as refugees, asylum seekers, or immigrants. Designed for children aged 4-8, we believe that reading picture books is a way to share and discuss big ideas with young children. We end each session with an art activity from Lynden art educator Claudia Orjuela. Follow-up activities will be available for download.

Scheduled to screen every third Wednesday of the month, HOME Story Time is a collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Library, the Islamic Resource Center, Hanan Refugee Relief Group, Alliance Française de Milwaukee, and Milwaukee African Women's Association. Videos will remain on view once they are posted.
