Elizabeth Bluemle, How Do You Wokka-Wokka?

Friday, April 8, 2016 - 4:00 PM | For Members and Their Guests ages 3 and up | $5 per person, payable at the door. Registration required.

Do you like to wokka-wokka? What? You don’t know how to wokka-wokka?! Well, then, it’s time to learn. Come join the fun when author Elizabeth Bluemle teaches this silly dance and accompanying song featured in her book How Do You Wokka-Wokka? Participants will also help the author—and a special guest drummer—create an April shower in the Library with her latest story, Tap Tap Boom Boom. Both titles celebrate life in the city with family and friends from all over the town.Elizabeth Bluemle
