Spring Break Activities!

Kim Neher - Wednesday, March 30, 2016

North Central Regional Library will present children's programs at many of our branch libraries during the upcoming spring break from school.


Book-It Repertory Theatre

Book-It Repertory Theatre of Seattle will bring literature to life with their performance of A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin at 10 of our branch libraries. The theater group was founded 26 years ago as a group of artists adapting short stories and touring the Northwest to promote reading. The Splash of Red tour tells the story of Horace Pippin, an African American painter born in Pennsylvania in 1888. While fighting in WWI, he was shot and left unable to use his painting arm. After the war, he worked tirelessly to restore the use of his arm and, after many years, was able to paint again. He was eventually discovered by renowned painter and illustrator N.C. Wyeth, who gave Pippin's art national attention.
