Reading, Quilting, Storytelling

In conjunction with the fifth annual Buena Park Reads Together, the library is holding a community quilt workshop every Thursday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. during the month of April. During the workshop, participants create a quilt square that represents themselves, their family, and/or community.

Buena Park Reads Together is a program designed to get the entire community reading and discussing the same book.  This year’s selection is The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.  The book was inspired by the true story of early nineteenth century abolitionist and suffragist Sarah Grimké.  Check out a copy of this unforgettable story, and join us as we create Buena Park’s story in a quilt.
