Sat, August 7, 2021 10:30 A.M.
Parkway Central Library
Join us in Shakespeare Park on Saturday, August 7 at 10:30 a.m. for a special event to close out Summer of Wonder 2021! Local author Janay Anderson will read her book I Love My Curls and teach us about hair positivity & self love.
About the book: Curls are Magical! I Love My Curls by Janay Anderson is a love letter to little girls with curls. They are encouraged to embrace the beauty of curly hair in a world where children receive more negative messages than positive when they do not fit into a standard of beauty that is not their own. Young readers and caregivers alike are supported in building self esteem and positive self identity as they embark on the journey of self love that is I Love My Curls.
About the author: Janay Anderson is an accomplished speaker, author, natural hair coach and self-esteem advocate for children who reside in Philadelphia.
This event is for children ages 11 & under and their caregivers/families. Each child will receive a free book and Summer of Wonder prizes, courtesy of the Free Library. Attendees will have an opportunity to purchase a copy of I Love My Curls and get the book signed by the author!
Shakespeare Park is located directly across the street from the Parkway Central Library at 1901 Vine Street.
