This is a virtual event.

HOME Multilingual Story Time features children’s books written or illustrated by artists who have faced forced displacement as refugees, asylum seekers, or immigrants, and come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. 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 virtual session with an art activity from Lynden art educator Claudia Orjuela.

Scheduled to screen every third Wednesday of the month from 10:30 to 11 am, HOME Multilingual Story Time is a collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Library, Alliance Française de Milwaukee, Hanan Refugee Relief Group, the Islamic Resource Center, Milwaukee African Women's Association, Milwaukee Taiko Group Hibiki, UWM Department of French, Italian and Comparative Literature - French Program, UWM Libraries, Walker's Point Center for the Arts, and Wisconsin Ukrainians, Inc.

Videos remain on view once they are posted, and can be accessed at any time. Download our resource handout for parents, teachers, and advanced readers here.
