It gleams and glistens in all the right places. And not only do those keytops provide a burst of color, but this machine is even set up with a purple ribbon, adding vibrancy to all that it types. A single raffle ticket will be $5, and all proceeds will be donated to an LGBTQ+ led and focused organization. Newsletter Link: https://mailchi.mp/8990d916cc56/upcoming-typewriter-raffle-may-2022-pt-2?e=105bf157ee

A Novel Idea (1726 East Passyunk) - '"Twas the Night Before Pride" story time June 12th from 11am-11:30am - Join us for a very special story time with Joanna McClintick, author of 'Twas the Night Before Pride. This joyful picture-book homage to a day of community and inclusion—and to the joys of anticipation—is also a comprehensive history. With bright, buoyant illustrations and lyrical, age-appropriate rhyme modeled on “’Twas the Night Before Christmas,” it tackles difficult content such as the Stonewall Riots and the AIDS marches. On the night before Pride, families everywhere are preparing to partake. As one family packs snacks and makes signs, an older sibling shares the importance of the march with the newest member of the family. Reflecting on the day, the siblings agree that the best thing about Pride is getting to be yourself. Debut author Joanna McClintick and Pura Belpré Award–winning author-illustrator Juana Medina create a new classic that pays homage to the beauty of families of all compositions—and of all-inclusive love.
