Members Only: Children’s Holiday Storytime
Members of the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens at the Family level and above are invited to the Gardens for a reading of “The Shortest Day” by Susan Cooper and illustrated by Carson Ellis, followed by a simple holiday craft.
Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper’s iconic solstice poem captures the magic behind returning seasonal light, holiday rituals that connected us with loved ones, friends, and previous generations—and hope for peace that we carry into the future.
This special storytime will take place in the Rose Garden. Attendees will receive a keepsake edition of the beautifully illustrated book. Registration is limited, so reserve your spot today!
