Event Details

Join Señor Chon on Friday, May 14th at 10 am on the SDPL Virtual Hub and SY Facebook page, as he reads "Henry and the Kite Dragon" by Bruce Edward Hall and William Low, in celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

"A Chinese boy becomes angry when the Italian boys in his New York City neighborhood keep destroying the beautiful kites the boy has helped to make. When he gathers his friends to seek revenge, what they gain instead is understanding. This is a gorgeously illustrated story based on true events that has a positive message for readers of all ages." Special thanks to Philomel and Penguin Books for allowing Señor Chon to share this special cultural story as we celebrate AAPI Heritage Month! 

*Throughout the Month of May, celebrate Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage month  with our Eastern Dragon Mythology activity kits.
