Events For Kids & Teens

Yes, you can find information on all our events on our store calendar.  But we want to make sure our younger patrons (and their parents) don't miss out on something special.  Here, you'll find a list of events especially geared to kids of all ages. And we expect more events to be added.

Upcoming Events

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 6 PM -  Do you know a teen or young adult who would like to read and discuss a recent work of fiction dealing with contemporary issues? This fall we're hosting three different book club meetings, free to attend, and moderated by an NC State professor and her students. For ages 14-18, Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King. A heartbreaking and mindbending story of a talented teenage artist's awakening to the brokenness of her family.

SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 2PM - JOHNNY MOORE
We are so excited to welcome Johnny Moore for what is sure to be an amazing children's event. This local Raleigh author of five previously published books for children is also a poet and greeting card writer. He will be reading from his newest book, Silence, Please: A Collection of Children’s Poems, a collection of poetry exploring the joy and wonder of daily childhood life. We recommend this book for children of all ages (and you too, adults!)
