Wondering what to do with the kids this weekend in Parkland? Why not stop by the Parkland Library? Some great events are planned to keep you and your kids entertained and learn new and exciting things!
Begin with the “All Booked Up Book Group” reading of Molokai by Alan Brennert
this Saturday, January 29th at 10:30 am, in honor of the “Polynesia in Parkland” Celebration.
This richly imagined novel, set in Hawaii more than a century ago, is an extraordinary epic of a little-known time and place—and a deeply moving testament to the resiliency of the human spirit.
Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off lands like her father, a merchant seaman. Then one day a rose-colored mark appears on her skin and those dreams are stolen from her. Taken from her home and family, Rachel is sent to Kalaupapa, the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka’i. Here her life is supposed to end—but instead she discovers it is only the beginning.
Following the book discussion, Learn to Hula!
The Learn to Hula Class will follow right after this Saturday, January 29th at 12:00pm.
“Polynesian Proud” will be holding a class for adults and teens to demonstrate and teach the art of Polynesian Dance. This class is for adults and teens only. Registration is required so call 954 757-4200 to book your spot!
