One Book” program teams up with Girl Scouts
We’re partnering with KPBS to promote two great causes — literacy and Girl Scouts — by co-hosting “One Book for Kids: Reading Fun with Girl Scouts San Diego.” Open to all ages, the free workshops take place from 1-3 p.m. in eight public libraries (including Chula Vista!) during October and November.
Activities include a reading from The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce, a screening of the Academy Award-winning short film of the same name, and related crafts. Girl Scouts recruitment staff will be on hand to engage prospective members and volunteers. The first 50 children to arrive at each workshop will receive a free copy of the story and a patch. The sessions, and an upcoming book signing with the author, are part of KPBS’ 10th annual One Book, One San Diego program.
