Your favorite monthly virtual program is back…
Oh yes, it’s Read And Write Night!
Kalamazoo County youth in grades K–5 are invited to join volunteers from the Western Michigan University chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association to spend time reading out loud then writing together to express their response to the story.
Hear a perspective that is new to you, express your own ideas in writing, and find power in the written word.
All Read and Write Nights will take place via Google Meet.
Each participating family will receive a copy of our monthly book prior to the event
This month’s session is open to 16 families
Registration opens on January 4th

Join the celebration in the kitchen as a family makes their traditional New Year’s soup—and shares the story of how Haitian independence came to be.
