Lenski Walk for Kids Youth Tour

July 13 / 10:00 am

“Sing a song of people / Walking fast or slow / People in the City / Up and down they go,” wrote Springfield native Lois Lenski, who, in addition to her prolific and award winning career as a children’s book author, was a gifted poet. Some of her most insightful work focuses on the experience of living in a city. Join us as we combine poetry, art, architecture, and collective memory on this exploration of downtown Springfield for kids. Created for ages 9 to 12, but children of all ages are welcome. Meet outside the Heritage Center, 117 South Fountain Avenue. Free. Guided by Phyllis Hill. Sponsored by Esther Manuel. Mobility 1.
