Join award winning illustrator and author Selina Alko for a book reading and Culture Doll-making workshop. Selina will read I Is for Immigrants, an alphabet picture book companion to the popular B Is for Brooklyn, that weaves together a multitude of immigrant experiences in a concise, joyful package. 

Selina will share about her own heritage and ask participants to think about their family’s origins – their ethnic/cultural customs, clothing, symbols, language, foods and more. There will be time to do a little research on this during the workshop. Inspired by this information, Selina will lead the group through a hands-on workshop to make Culture Dolls. 

Supply list includes:

  • Pattern papers (origami, wrapping paper)
  • Scraps of fabric
  • Yarn (for hair)
  • Markers, colored pencils, or paints. If paints then also brushes and container of water
  • Scissors
  • Glue
