It's a Hard Knock Life: #RALKids Week 3 Recap

A lot of great Read Across Lawrence for Kids events occurred last weekend! Free family movie showing of Annie at Liberty Hall, comic drawing with Astrokitty, and a book discussion at the library!!


  1. #RALKids filled up the Lawrence Kids Magazine To-Do list this past weekend...
  2. Main character Turtle’s favorite thing to read is Little Orphan Annie, an extremely popular comic that appeared in the funny pages back in the day. It’s hard to come by this comic nowadays, so Liberty Hall hosted a free family movie screening of Annie for #RALKids. 170 people were in attendance!
  3. Comics were referenced quite a bit in Turtle in Paradise. Joel from Astrokitty Comics & Games visited the library to teach kids about comics and how to draw their own. It was radical! 
  4. REMINDER: The big Read Across Lawrence for Kids Author Talk Finale featuring Jenni Holm is Saturday, Sept. 28th at the Lawrence Arts Center @ 2pm! If there is one #RALKids event you don't want to miss, this is it!!!
