Wishtree Reading Event for All Ages at Prairiewoods
- 2 - 4 p.m.
- All Ages
Wishtree by Katherine Applegate is the story of Red, a 216-year-old oak tree who has been a home to many and who has seen and welcomed people of all faiths and cultures over the decades. Children, families, neighbors and friends are welcome to share the afternoon together at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) to celebrate this heartwarming story! Read aloud from Wishtree, walk through the woods, learn to identify oak trees of various ages, make your own wish ribbon crafts and enjoy snacks together. This free program is offered in partnership with the Inter-Religious Council of Linn County and will be facilitated by Angie Pierce Jennings. The first 20 families or individuals to register receive a free copy of the book Wishtree! Registration is required by Jan. 31. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
