Special Events: Rampart Readers/Children’s Book Club–Book of the Month is Your Name is a Song by Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow
August 26 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm Free
- Join us August 26th from 11am-1pm in the Visitor and Education Center @ Fort Monroe for Rampart Readers, a children’s book club partnership between Fort Monroe Authority and Hampton Public Library. This month, in honor of African Landing Day, we are reading Your Name is a Song by Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow and illustrated by Luisa Uribe, showcasing the beauty in every name as a little girl’s mother teaches her the musicality of African, Asian, Black-American, Latinx and Middle Eastern names! After, spend some time with us to create a straw flute to help sing your name!
