Focus on Feelings: Mazza Museum and Findlay-Hancock County Public Library to Offer Family-Centered Reading Event
The University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum, in partnership with the Findlay-Hancock County Library’s CommunityREAD program, is offering a free public event for children and families that will teach fun ways to talk about feelings. Featured will be the book “The Rabbit Listened,” by Cori Doerrfeld. The event will be held on Monday, March 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the University’s Virginia B. Gardner Fine Arts Pavilion.
UF students and area organizations will provide fun and engaging activities designed to make expressing feelings fun for the whole family! Activities will include story reading, art activities, therapy animals, drama, puppets, movement, snacks and more.
Also, children’s book illustrators Tom Lichtenheld, Will Hillenbrand and Lizzy Rockwell will be joining participants, and will autograph some of their books, which will be for sale in the Mazza Museum Gift Shop.
CommunityREAD is the Findlay-Hancock County Library’s month-long annual program that encourages reading and promotes the benefits of literacy with various activities, including visits by lauded authors whose books are selected for the community’s shared reading experience. This year’s selected book for adults is “Only Child,” a novel by Rhiannon Navin. She will be speaking in Findlay on March 28.
