Mayor Warren’s Summer Reading Challenge, Kids’ Kickoff Party

Wednesday, June 21, 2017
5:30 pm-7:00 pm
Newton City Hall, 1000 Commonwealth Ave. Newton Centre

Please join us to kick off Mayor Warren's 2017 summer reading program, Build a Better World!  Mayor Warren will kick it all off. We'll have information on the summer reading program, snacks, a do it yourself craft, and the One-Man Circus in-a-Suitcase.    From Kevin O’Keefe’s suitcase an entire circus emerges: tent, band, lights, the boisterous ringmaster Steve Fitzpatrick, the officious Mervin Merkle, the incredible Bumbilini Family, the Magician to the Stars Clyde Zerbini, and Keefer–an innocent trying to run away and join the circus. However, the most important performers emerge from the audience. Each performance becomes a dialogue between the characters and the audience–a light-hearted collaboration.
