Holiday Book Fair

Sunday, December 1, 2019

1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

East Congregational Church, 610 Adams Street, Milton, MA

All children are invited to kick off the holiday season with a book theme at the sixth Holiday Book Fair at East Congregational Church. Our guest bookseller, Barefoot Books (a publisher of diverse, inclusive, and inspiring books, founded by two mothers and based in Cambridge), will be on hand to help shoppers find perfect holiday gifts. Volunteers from the “Reading Change Lives” literacy initiative at East Church will host arts and crafts, story time, and refreshments. Every child will also receive a free book… and milk and cookies!
East Congregational Church launched its “Reading Changes Lives” literacy initiative in 2014 in the belief that literacy is essential to equality and justice. As a complicated and broad social justice issue, literacy impacts other issues, including economic justice, gender inequality, criminal justice, public education, and racial justice.
Our goal is to change people’s lives through the gift of reading. Who knows? We might indeed change the world.
For more information, contact the church office at (617)-698-0270 or Rev. Shelly Davis at (617)-698-0229.
