Join Dr. Anne Fishel at Boston Book Festival

FDP-Literacy-Week4.1On Thursday, October 22, 2015, parents and children ages 3-10 can join FDP co-founder Dr. Anne Fishel for a fun interactive workshop at the South End Library!

Dr. Fishel is the author of the acclaimed book Home for Dinner: Mixing Food, Fun and Conversation for a Happier Family and Healthier Kids. She has written extensively about the many benefits of family dinners, including a boost in literacy skills for kids, and how to use dinnertime as a fun opportunity to encourage reading. At this workshop, participants will eat foods from favorite children’s books, have conversations about reading, and have fun telling their own stories.

What’s your favorite food from a book? Green eggs and ham, Strega Nona’s magic noodles, or clam chowder from Moby Dick? Come eat, talk, and explore the many connections between dinner and reading.

4:30 p.m. Thursday, 10/22/15
South End Library, 685 Tremont Street, Boston

Space is limited — please RSVP to paromita@thefamilydinnerproject.org if you wish to attend.
