For the most part of
For the most part of 2018, Lanie DeLay has been welcoming your kids to our Kids in the Cliff storytime. Every weekend, she looked at books she thinks are unique or special, beautiful or moving or distinctly witty.
Due to personal reasons, Lanie has been forced to take a short hiatus from hosting Kids in the Cliff. She’s planning to come back, with more books than ever on January 27th.
As always, all ages are welcome (we want babies, older kids and the adults to have a great time too!), and emphasis is on picture books especially suited for the young ones. The readings (2 – 4 stories) usually last around 30 minutes or so plus discussions or other activities to keep it fun. The weekly series is organized by Lanie DeLay and features occasional storytime guests. Recent visitors have included an actor, architect, author, and a cheese monger, and subjects have ranged from contemporary artists and classical conductors to kooky holidays, kid-friendly current events and dear dads. We can’t wait to see what’s in store!
Lanie DeLay has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
On Sunday mornings, come early for a good spot, and bring your kids to infuse them with a love of reading!
