Story hour just got a lot more glamorous! Drag Story Hour is just what it sounds like! Storytellers using the art of drag to read books to kids in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where everyone can be their authentic selves!
This is a free family event, appropriate for all ages, especially toddlers, preschoolers, and young children. Drag Story Hour is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County, MD.
Registration is required and opens one-week ahead of time on Sunday, September 24th at 2:00pm.
Library Program Attendance (both virtual and in the branch) is limited to participants within the suggested age range of the program. Children attending an MCPL program under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Adults attending a program intended for children must have an accompanying child.
