The Brentwood Library welcomes drag queen Bella Aldama to storytime. This all ages program will include storybooks focusing on love and inclusiveness, followed by a craft.
Drag Queen Storytime will take place at the Brentwood Community Center on Monday, February 11 at 6:30 p.m. This event is free and sponsored by the Friends of the Brentwood Library.
Drag Queen Story Hour originated at the San Francisco Public Library, and celebrates diversity and empathy. Brooklyn librarian Judy Zuckerman describes it as “a fun and important program that celebrates diversity in the way that children may dress and act. It encourages children to look beyond gender stereotypes and embrace unfettered exploration of self.
Programs like Drag Queen Story Hour encourage acceptance of difference and help to prevent bullying, while providing an enjoyable literary experience.”
