Join Book Culture LIC on Wednesday, March 11th at 6:30pm for an evening of poetry with Anna O. Dinwoodie, Ricardo Alberto Maldonado, and Wendy Salinger as part of the Poets of Queens Reading Series.
Inspired by the true story of a community garden in Brooklyn, New York, picture book The Bear’s Garden by writer Marcie Colleen and illustrator Alison Oliver is a testament to how imagination and dedication can transform communities and create beauty for everyone in unexpected places.
A little girl sees an empty lot in a city and imagines what it can be.
a place to grow,
a place to play,
and a place to love.
With the help of her stuffed bear, the girl brings her community together to create a beautiful garden.
