Anyone who knows Vickie knows she adores books and reading. She considered becoming a librarian (and chose another wordsmith occupation – journalist / freelance writer – instead). And she started the Mity Nice Stories on the Steps near our cart, and hopes to continue it for a long time.
So our next Second Sunday event, held in conjunction with the Kerrytown Book Festival, is special, even though it also is considerably smaller than our recent Fairies & Fairy Door Festival or Mity Nice Street Fair.
We are celebrating books, especially books for children and books about fairies and friendship, at the Books are Beautiful Second Sunday. (We have a couple of new books that we think you’ll really love!) We will read and share our favorite titles – and create a book-related craft project or two, including a custom bookmark.
Then we’ll encourage you to spend time at the wonderful activities in the Book Festival. (We’re supporting the festival by giving all its volunteers a Mity Nice Italian ice sometime in the afternoon.)
What: Children’s arts and crafts table, poet’s corner and story time
When: Sunday, Sept. 9, 12 – 3 p.m.
Where: At the Mity Nice cart, on the sidewalk at 303 Detroit Street
Who: Mity Nice staffers and you
Why: Because we love books and poetry — and celebrating with friends!
How: Get ready by re-reading your favorite books – we’ll be asking you about them! Then invite along a friend to this lovely afternoon.
What else: At the Kerytown Book Festival make a book with our friends from FLY Art Center, who created the moustaches and wands during our Fairy Festival. There’s also a 3 p.m. session for kids called “Stories about Stories” with a local librarian.
