Dance, Ride, and Roll with Valerie Bolling (In-person Book Launch Party outside Lapham Community Center)

Submitted by elmstreetbooks on Mon, 04/25/2022 - 12:45pm

Join us for outdoor games, an impromptu dance party, a book reading, crafts, and more in celebration of author Valerie Bolling’s newest book, Together We Ride. Weather permitting, we will meet on the lawn behind Lapham Community Center. (We’ll move indoors if necessary.) Ideal for preschoolers, elementary kids, and their families.

Register here.

Directions to Lapham Community Center can be found here. This program is intended for families with children. Adults and children over 2 are strongly encouraged to wear masks for the duration of the program.

Valerie Bolling has been an educator in Greenwich for almost 30 years, and her debut picture book, LET’S DANCE!, was published in March 2020 and won SCBWI’s Crystal Kite Award in 2021. Since her book was released a week before the pandemic shutdown, she has been engaged in numerous virtual storytimes and author panels. Sharing her books with children and inspiring them to write their own stories brings Valerie immense joy! This year she’s excited to welcome TOGETHER WE RIDE in April and RIDE, ROLL, RUN: TIME FOR FUN! in October, and she has six more books on the way in 2023 and 2024. Valerie and her husband live in Stamford and enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, going to the theater, and dancing. To learn more about Valerie and her books, please visit her website.
