For all ages
All ages are welcome to celebrate Kula in the Sky, a beautiful new picture book that celebrates the cultural roots of Fiji, the bond of sisterhood, and the beauty of the South Pacific. Kula and Yasi are young sisters living in pre-colonial Fiji. Their close bond is challenged when Yasi enters womanhood and Kula feels left alone. But an unexpected friend – a clever bat! – takes Kula on an emotional journey that leads her to a new understanding.
After the reading, participants will be joined by members of the Illinois Bat Conservation Program to discuss why it is important to protect bats all over the world. This discussion will include information about how to support local bats right here in the CU area, followed by a family-friendly activity!
