Drum Dream Girl Story Walk
October 3, 2015 at 11:00 am–1:00 pm
Connolly Branch of the Boston Public Library 433 Centre Street Jamaica Plain, MA 02130 United States
|The Drum Dream Girl Story Walk will take place in Jamaica Plain’s Latin Quarter on Saturday, October 3 from 11:00 – 1:00. The walk will feature the children’s book Drum Dream Girl by Margarita Engle and Rafael López, about a courageous Latina girl who broke tradition and entered the male-dominated world of Cuban percussion players. Family-friendly and ideal for children ages 3-10, the story walk will start at the Connolly Branch of the Boston Public Library at 433 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain and the book will be read in pages spread across various storefronts along Centre St. The final stop will be at the Hyde Square Task Force where Boston Ballet will lead a “movement maze” workshop and there will be a Latin Percussion workshop led by female members of the Dale Percussion Ensemble of the Hyde Square Task Force.|
