Celebrate the freedom to read by joining us for a free event at the Blue Island Public Library! Local children’s author Jarrett Dapier will read his picture book, Mr. Watson’s Chickens, which has been the subject of challenges and bans. A chicken-themed craft is to follow. Local independent bookstore Bookie’s will be selling copies of the book for purchase after the event.
