Storytime at Oakland
August 7 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Join storyteller LaDoris Bias-Davis and Oakland staff for an hour of stories at Oakland Cemetery!
In partnership with GEEARS: The Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students, Historic Oakland Foundation is taking part in the Mayor’s Summer Reading Club on Friday, July 23 and Saturday, August 7!
Join storyteller LaDoris Bias-Davis for a reading of Do You Love the Dark? , a surprise activity, and a mini-tour to explore the sights and symbols of Oakland Cemetery! This hour-long program is perfect for children ages 3-5.
This program is free and open to the public. Registered kids will receive a free copy of Do You Love the Dark? To ensure that each child receives a book, we are limiting spaces to 25 children. Advanced registration is required.
Programs will take place at 9:30 AM on Friday, July 23 and Saturday, August 7! We will meet in North Public Grounds (open green space located on the left when you walk through the main entrance). Picnic blankets are encouraged!
With pictures by award-winning illustrator R. Gregory Christie, Do You Love the Dark? tells the story of a young girl conquering the common childhood fear of the dark. Through lively poetry, author Maya Lawrence turns scary shadows, sounds, and darkness into a perfect bedtime story to tuck your child into with each night, casting out fear and leaving love in its place.
