Virtual Story Time: Literacy Day Edition

Sep 08 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

| Free

Your favorite Story Time is going digital! In celebration of World Literacy Day, we’ve invited special guest Melanie Tawil to read our Book of the Week, Where Are You From? by Yamile Saied Mendez. Melanie is the co-founder and CEO of local IT company SwipeTrack Solutions, a 40 Under 40 in 2018 by the San Antonio Business Journal and currently serves on the Mayor’s Economic Transition Team in response to COVID-19. Melanie is a lover of books, an avid reader and supporter of Hemisfair— we can’t wait to have her join us!

We’re also proud to partner with Kendra Scott for this event. Enter code GIVEBACK8832 in your cart or at checkout on kendrascott.com, and 20% of your purchase will benefit Hemisfair Conservancy to help keep programs like Story Time running.

The first 100 to register will receive a Zoom code via email to access Story Time. Each week, we’ll post a new registration form on hemisfair.org/events. Registration will remain open until filled or until 5 p.m. Monday.

Virtual Story Time is made possible by Cavender Auto Family, Community First Health Plans, Dollar General Literacy Foundation, OCI Solar Power and individual donations to the Hemisfair Conservancy.
