Kitchigami Regional Library will host children’s author and illustrator duo Stephen and Trisha Speed Shaskan for the summer reading program. Events are at 10 a.m. Thursdays, June 17, July 1 and July 15.

Preschool and elementary kids will enjoy these free virtual presentations that promote literacy, art and music. The program lets kids create their own stories by having the author and illustrator of “Punk Skunks” prompt their audience to shout out whatever comes to mind.

Participate at home or with others at a local library to experience these live, online Zoom interactive events. Each session features different stories and songs for kids to enjoy

For more information about how to join, go to the KRLS Legacy Programs Facebook page @KRLSLegacy or contact your local library.

This free Legacy Program is funded by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
