SI Families – Wanna be in a fun video?!!! NPR is filming Staten Island OutLOUD as we all “Paint Tom’s Fence” on Sat, Jan 28 at 1:30pm at Richmondtown branch NY Public Library, 200 Clarke Ave, SINY 10306 (corner Amber St). The video will be on NPR.org & audio on their radio broadcast!
We’re celebrating Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer & Staten Island – a waterfront town that’s a lot like Hannibal Missouri. We’ll have a picket fence for everyone to decorate. We won’t slap wet paint on Tom Sawyer’s fence – Instead, you can hang small drawings, poems, Twain quotes, or images of favorite Island scenes on the fence. So you won’t get paint on your shoes.
As musicians play & readers perform, you can create simple drawings celebrating Staten Island – or Mark Twain & Tom Sawyer. Bring copies of favorite poems, Twain quotes or images, or take one from a stack that we’ll provide for anyone to hang on Tom’s fence. (Afterwards, you can take ’em home)
We’ll have arts supplies, paper/pens for writing poems, & images of SI sites – All ready to hang on Tom’s fence.
Live music, Mark Twain enactors in dapper white suits, and readings from the fence-painting chapter of Tom Sawyer.
Want to join in our reading? Step up to the microphone & share Tom Sawyer’s adventures!
Great for all ages. Free & open to the public!
