Nathan Kumar Scott -- "The Great Race" Storytime and Puppet Show

Nathan Kumar Scott will use traditional Indonesian puppets to help narrate his newly published children’s book, The Great Race, on Saturday, July 7th at *11:00am*. The story is an Indonesian variation of the tortoise-and-hare fable, and features the trickster character Kanchil the mouse deer. Rather than simply read from the books, Nathan will be on his feet, enlivening the story of Kanchil. After story time, the author will discuss the relationship between Indonesian puppetry and storytelling, and will offer kids a chance to play with the puppets. Recommended for ages 4 to adultThis is a FREE children's event, open to all!
