For several years, an Alaskan nonprofit organization has been hosting gatherings that promote literacy.
Thread, (later referenced in this article in lowercase, as the organization prefers) is a statewide organization that has many programs in communities across Alaska focused on Early Childhood care and Education.
This Thursday is thread’s 11th Annual Book Party in the Park from 4-7pm, rain or shine.
Rebecca Sentner stopped by KNBA to share information about the organization and the event. She says attendees are likely to celebrate with live music, dancing, temporary tattoos, snacks, and of course tons of FREE children’s books.
This year's event has a storytelling bent - featuring storytelling in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Siberian Yupik.
