Baby/Toddler Storytime @ Kensington Library, San Diego, CA

March 2 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a delightful Storytime/Read-Aloud featuring author Zoe Ghahremani and illustrator Susie Ghahremani for a Storytime featuring their new book, Memory Garden. We’ll have a lively morning together in Nana’s garden full of laughter, discovery, and connection.

In lyrical text that blends past and present, Memory Garden takes us to the places we leave behind but never forget. The nostalgic text and vibrant illustrations invite us to enjoy the beauty of Iranian gardens – and culture – in an adventure that will resonate with readers of all backgrounds.

Susie will also be doing a drawing class with the kids, if time permits. Ideal age is school age children but all ages are welcome.

Bring some seeds or homegrown goodies from your garden for if you would like to participate in a seed swap/garden swap after the Read-Aloud!
