Join us on Saturday, March 16 at 10:30 AM for a delightful story time with local author Dane Liu, as she share her touching and comforting book, Laolao's Dumplings.
Millie loves to help LaoLao cook, especially her favorite dish. Dumplings! They gather fresh ingredients from Chinatown. Chives from Auntie Lim, shrimp from Uncle Lee, and juicy, fragrant lychees that make their days together so sweet.
As the seasons change, LaoLao feels more and more tired, too tired to make dumplings. But can Millie make them without LaoLao? And will her dumplings come out delicious, and make LaoLao happy, too?
Full of humor, heart, and wholly original illustrations, this story is a timeless celebration of family, food, community, and the different ways we share love.
This event includes storytime, coloring pages, and a book signing! Don't miss out—RSVP now and join us for an incredible event in the REC Room.
