As a part of Village Books Children’s Book Week, Sarai Stevens, local author/illustrator/community activist, shares her children’s book of papercuts- a book to create dialogue between adults and children around the environmental and economic challenges we face and the great opportunity that stands before us if we choose to grasp it.
Reading and Discussion will take place in the Village Books Reading Gallery at 1200 11th St., Bellingham, WA 98225 on May 18th at 4pm.
As parents and moral beings,
we must create healthy systems of being that move beyond an economy rooted in consumption and limitless growth.
Envision walking down new paths
to resiliency with our children.
Coming from a place of love and compassion, we can be open with our children about the challenges we face if we actively involve them in envisioning and manifesting new paths to the future. There will be time during discussion for children and adults to share their visions of happier, healthier, more resilient communities.
This is a Transition Whatcom and Chuckanut Transition co-sponsored event. The Transition Movement is a growing global effort that seeks to encourage positive community responses to environmental, social, and economic instabilities. Neighbors are invited to shape and take ownership of local solutions.
