Come to an exciting 3D reading of the FLORIDINGERS book series by author, Gordon Halleck and illustrator, Perdita Ross.

This is a multimedia performance for kids of all ages. 

A book reading using black-light and 3D glasses lets the audience experience books in a whole new way! Everyone will gain new insight into the techniques used to illustrate children's books. 

After the interactive reading, we'll have an interactive art activity where budding artists can create their own fun characters from scratch!
