Read, sing, and dance together. Children and caregivers will play musical chairs - but no chairs are removed and nobody is left out! Instead, read from the book that's on the chair next to you when the music stops. It's hilarious fun, and you'll discover wonderful stories by authors who are coming to our area this month for the Humboldt County Children's Author Festival. Ages 9 months to 9 years.

Homegoing, by Gyaa Yasi, is October's featured book. This novel begins with two sisters, one living in Ghana, one sold as a slave and transported to America, and brings to life 300 years of Ghanaian history and 200 years of America's saga. It's praised for the way in which 'the villages of West Africa come alive' (Isabel Wilkerson in the NY Times) lovingly detailing the cultural treasure, history and language lost when slavers came; for 'unforgettable characters' and its 'exquisite language, its implacable sorrow, its soaring beauty... monumental portrait of the forces that shape families and nations' (Goodreads)
