Tampa Bay’s Overheard: For the children

Tampa Bay literary arts organizer Wordier Than Thou and the community-oriented Tampa Bay Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will team up on June 9 to present their “Family Pride & Literacy Celebration with Drag Queen Story Hour.”

Children and community leaders will gather from 10:00-2:00 p.m. at Wordier Than Thou’s bookstore in Pinellas Park for a reading of local author Rob Sanders’ “Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag.” Area favorite queen Stephanie Stuart will read and present its colorful pages at 11:00 a.m. While it’s geared toward children ages 3-8, the organization advises that older kids and adults will find plenty to enjoy.

Throughout the day, children of all ages can also participate in a book swap, trading in unwanted books and finding their new favorites. For more information about the free and family-friendly event, email WordierThanThou@gmail.com.
