Penn Museum and the GPCA's GroundSwell initiative offers a free Community Night and the kickoff of a month-long children's book drive!
WHEN: Wednesday, April 10, 5 to 8 pm
Penn Museum curators, collections keepers, and graduate students join in the celebration with gallery storytelling, and hands on activities.
Guests can learn to write ancient Sumerian on clay tablets and write their names in Egyptian Hieroglyphs, during workshops offered throughout the evening. Stories from diverse cultures are presented by curators, keepers, and staff in the Museum's galleries. The event also features a poetry workshop, poetry readings by young writers, and more.
Guests are encouraged to bring a new or gently used book—suitable for prekindergarten through elementary school—to contribute to Philadelphia READS.
