Join local PJ Library author Lesléa Newman along with local drag queen entertainer Jenayah De Rosario and local musical edu-tainer Felicia Sloin for Sparkle Havdallah: A Drag Queen Story Hour! This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT!

Wear your sparkly best or just come as you are, as we say goodbye to Shabbat with fabulous music and stories, including Lesléa's newest book, SPARKLE BOY. Inscribed books will be available for purchase. We'll have snacks, crafts, a photo booth and dress up activities. This event is FREE, thanks to generous support from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Drag Queen Story Hour captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, and where dress up is real. Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco, and now takes place in communities all over the world.

Co-sponsored by Lander~Grinspoon Academy, Gan Keshet Preschool, Beit Ahavah, Congregation B'nai Israel, Abundance Farm and PJ Library of Jewish Federation of Western MA. For more info please contact Amy Meltzer at [email protected]
