View below Summer Reading NYC's Lights Camera Read Launch from Last Year held at the New York Public Library branch in Inwood/Washington Heights Manhattan, New York, curated by Danita Nichols, Children's Librarian NYPL.
The Summer Reading Program is a collaborative effort between the New York Public Library, the Brooklyn Public Library, the Queens Public Library and schools of the Board of Education. This year’s theme is, One World, Many Stories.
Here are the Platinum Pias Award winning kids stories from last year's Lights Camera Read in Washington Heights/Inwood inspired by Summer Reading NYC books adapted to skit form so they can be dramatized live by the Magic Neighbors troupe while being filmed...Lights, camera, read!
This year the troupe will be performing in the South Bronx and consists of volunteers from "Stylists for Literacy" who will be doing hair for the humans in the show as well as acting in the performance themselves alongside puppets including Greenie Green, Heartina, Flowerina and Bernie Bunny.
