Bring the whole family together for a special mythological edition of Picnic de Libros/Storybook Picnic. It’s a day of multicultural mythological exploration where you can sculpt miniature deities and symbols inspired by pre-Columbian mythology with GOGO MOAD; learn about Afro-Caribbean drumming and its significance in oral traditions and folklore with a Miami Bloco drum workshop; delight in theatrical storytelling based on Greek mythology ; and marvel at a celebratory lion dance performance accompanied by drumming and a kung fu demonstration!

In between these activities you can snap a selfie with a Japanese kitsune spirit  character and take a family photo with roving Greek characters from Creative Stage Productions. And North Miami Beach Discovery Library will be on-site with Caribbean mythology books to explore and a mythological monster coloring activity. You’ll also learn about MBF’s Books for Free program and leave with a storytime picnic basket filled with books for the whole family to enjoy!

Copies of the 2024 Big Read book, Madeline Miller’s CIRCE and themed children’s books will be given away while supplies last; programming in Spanish and English.

Co-presented in partnership with the Koubek Center, Miami Book Fair, and Cuatrogatos as part of the 2024 NEA Big Read Miami.
