Listen! Literacy and Arts Festival this Saturday, May 19

Event: Feb 18, 2012

The fantastic 2-Cent collective presents its second-annual Listen! Literacy and Arts Festival this Saturday, May 19, at noon on the block of Bayou Road that fronts the Community Book Center (2523 Bayou Road). Scholastic will give away thousands of free new books for kids and a stage of live music and other performances, food and drink vendors, and hundreds of book-loving revelers will be on hand. Room 220 attended last year’s event, and it was great. If you can’t make the festival, you can donate to the effort.
