Special Storytime with Cherry Mo!

Join us for a very special Storytime picnic with debut author, Cherry Mo! Bring a blanket and some snacks as we sit outside on the Square and listen to Cherry read her new picture book Home in a Lunchbox, a story about how our favorite foods can bring comfort when we're feeling out of place or discouraged! It's sure to be a super sweet morning filled with books, snacks, and sunshine so be sure to come out to support a local author! No registration required.

About the Book:
When Jun moves from Hong Kong to America, the only words she knows are hello, thank you, I don’t know, and toilet. Her new school feels foreign and terrifying.

But when she opens her lunchbox to find her favorite meals—like bao, dumplings, and bok choy—she realizes home isn’t so far away after all.

Through lush art and spare dialogue, Cherry Mo’s breathtakingly beautiful debut picture book reminds readers that friendship and belonging can be found in every bite.

About the Author:
Cherry Mo grew up in Hong Kong and moved to the United States at the age of ten. Home in a Lunchbox is her debut picture book and was inspired by her first days of school in America. Cherry writes and illustrates stories that she hopes bring young readers a sense of comfort and belonging. See more of her work on www.cherrymo.com, or on Twitter and Instagram @hellocherrymo.
