Join us for a family friendly night of live music, storytelling, art making and community!
Come get down with the GRAMMY nominated Oakland based children’s music group Alphabet Rockers who make learning come alive with the beats, rhymes, dance moves, and community of hip hop.
Listen to local children’s book author Tiffany Golden take us on a journey with Midnight, Keeper of Dreams and Protector of Children in the mystical land of Shina, as she reads from her Midnight Stories Series.
