Join special guest Mary Bleckwehl at Early Childhood Family Literacy Night on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at the Longfellow School gym (201 Orchard St. S).

From 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., the local author will read and act out one of her books; and the evening will include discussion about how the way adults read to children can increase learning. Every family gets to take a book home at the end of the event.
