We’re doing a “March Madness” takeover of our regularly scheduled First Wednesday programming to bring you our much-awaited annual BYOB— Bring Your Own Book event at Rising Tide Brewing Company!
Belatedly celebrating the illustrious Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America Day (March 2) Brick & Beam Society is popping up again for the third year with our friends at Rising Tide on Wednesday, March 7 from 5:30-7:00 PM to support early childhood literacy in our local community.
Please bring new or gently used books written by educators’ favorites— Tomie dePaola, Anna Dewdney, and/ or Mo Willems, authors of childhood must-reads like Strega Nona, Llama Llama Red Pajama, and The Pigeon Needs a Bath!
In our inaugural year, Brick & Beam members and friends collected 150 books for Westbrook Schools’ annual author study series, where students across the district read multiple books from the same author; last year, we broke our stretch goal of 200 books for students in local Portland elementary schools! Can we beat those numbers and fill the bookshelves?
Join us in booking it to get these authors’ titles in time:
• Buy local: Longfellow Books, Print: A Bookstore, and Sherman’s Books;
• Click and go: Brick & Beam’s Amazon Wish List (link:https://www.amazon.com/hz/
• Can’t make it? Drop off at United Way (1 Canal Plaza, Suite 300, Portland, ME) or have Amazon ship it to us on your behalf!
