Ft Drum-Area MilKids Invited to Fun Night of Music and Books, Fri., Sept. 16, 2016, 6:30-8:30 PM EDT

September 16, 2016 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

Celebrate being a military kid with this special night of music, books, and fun for Fort Drum-area military kids, Friday, September 16, 2016, 6:30-8:30 PM Eastern, at The Reading Room Bookstore, 21182 Salmon Run Mall Loop W, Ste A102, Watertown, New York.

You’ll meet Janine Boldrin, coauthor of Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life, and the editorial director of Military Kids’ Life magazine.

Military Kids’ Life magazine is the only print magazine written by military kids for military kids. The current issue of the magazine is all about music, being strong, and the awesomeness of your military home.

Kids will have the chance to step up to the mic and sing to their favorite tunes (and wow the mall with their military kid talent!), show off their strength, and make a fun craft that tells the story of their military life.

The Reading Room will have a selection of Elva Resa books for purchase. Books like Night Catch, Deployment Journal for Kids, and The Wishing Tree, were created especially for military kids!

This event is open to kids of all ages, but older elementary, middle school, and high school kids are especially invited to attend. Drop off your story samples and talk to the Janine to be considered for publication in the next issue of Military Kids’ Life!

Subscribe to Military Kids’ Life and receive four issues per year of awesome milkid content!
