Raising Readers Together

Come to the City of Asylum on Saturday, July 18 at 1:30 pm for the next session of Raising Readers Together, an initiative of Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children (PAEYC) and City of Asylum.

Raising Readers Together brings families together for an hour of conversation about engaging books, and have them leave with a beautiful children’s book. Topics include cultural diversity, having fun with language, technology, and why we should all share stories with young children.

This free series will occur every other Saturday for six weeks. Families do not have to attend all sessions to participate. Raising Readers Together is targeted toward children aged birth to 5 years, but older family members and friends are more than welcome to participate.

This series is part of the Alphabet City Jr. Program. City of Asylum is helping create the next generation of global citizens with biweekly programming for elementary and middle school students and their families. Alphabet City Jr. features storytelling, arts and crafts, and other forms of expression from cultures around the world.

Visit the City of Asylum calendar to find the next Raising Readers Together event.  For more information, or to reserve your free spot, email Karen Simpson, or call 412-323-0278.
