One Thousand and One Words: Kid Friendly Event at City Lit Books!

Calling all kids (and parents)! Join local author, illustrator and teacher Erica Weisz on Saturday, July 20 at 11am for an afternoon of "One Thousand and One Words" at City Lit Books, 2523 N. Kedzie.

Weisz's book One Thousand and One Words tackles the tough subject of bullying in schools. Her character, Theodore, deals with bullying issues and devises solutions on overcoming them.

This free event is suitable for children aged 5-9. It's a great way for parents to start a discussion with their kids, and to enjoy a summer afternoon out.
