Stories for Free Children Story Hour & Watercolors Workshop: Featuring Noah Grigni
August 17 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmSuggested donation $5
Our Stories for Free Children Story Hour is back and we are so honored to have illustrator and comic artist Noah in the house to read from It Feels Good to be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity, which was illustrated by Noah. In addition to their reading, Noah will also be leading an engaging watercolors workshop. People of all ages are welcome to attend with their families. This is a Charis Circle Strong Families Whole Children Program. The suggested donation is $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. About Noah: Noah Grigni is an illustrator and comic artist from Decatur, and a nonbinary trans boy. Through art, they hope to make space for more stories centering diverse trans and queer characters with depth, personality, and agency. Their art is a call to action, a reminder to heal, and a celebration of queer love in its endless many forms. Noah graduated from Decatur High School in 2015, and from Lesley University in 2018 with a BFA in Illustration. They currently live in Boston with their partner, Braden, and their cat, Tino. It Feels Good To Be Yourself is their first children’s book. You can see more of Noah’s work at noahgrigni.com, or on Instagram @ngrigni.
