Authors in the Park Story Time is a wonderful opportunity for children and parents or caregivers to enjoy stories in the great outdoors. Local children’s authors will be set up in different gardens on the grounds of The Botanic Garden and will read their books for audiences throughout the morning.
Families are invited to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy after story time. Books will be available for purchase in the gift shop.
Each of the featured authors will be reading their book in a different garden, creating an opportunity for all to explore and discover different gardens throughout the park.
