One of our 70th anniversary events this year has been a monthly storytelling hour for children, held in Luria Park. Children’s book authors have come and read books, talked about writing them and had a hands-on craft project also.
Our last author of the season will be Courtney Pippin-Mathur. She grew up in Texas and drew and doodled throughout her school years. In college, after an Art History class, she decided on art as a career and after moving to the east coast has pursued the writing and illustrating of children’s books. Among her books are “Maya was Grumpy’ and ‘Dragons Rule, Princesses Drool’.
Come so the children can listen to a story or two, and maybe do some doodles too.
Thanks to everyone for coming out to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of HRA!

The Civic Association hosted a party at the HRA Pool on Sept 17th, open to all residents. Over 200 neighbors and friends came out, including original settlers and newcomers of less than 12 hours. Honestly, it was pretty magical. The highlight was the HRA Mixtape featuring live performances from our resident musicians. Please give them some love by attending an upcoming show, following them on social media, streaming their tracks on loop on Spotify, etc:
HRA’s Plant Native Trees Initiative is here!

This month's Author for Storytelling In The Park is Erica S. Perl.
Erica S. Perl writes picture books, novels, chapter books, plays, articles, and more. Her books have received accolades and awards, including the National Jewish Book Award, and three Sydney Taylor Medals (one silver, two bronze). They've also landed on State Book Award lists, “Best Books” lists, and library lists.
Erica teaches and presents at schools, libraries, conferences, and festivals. Her author visits are educational, engaging, and empowering. This may be because she has a theater background, a law degree, and an ice cream truck driver's license! She lives in Washington, D.C. with her family.
Her newest books for young readers is, WHEN CARROT MET COOKIE and WHEN WHALES FLY which she will probably read (along with some others depending on time!) at the Park on Saturday. Come join us for a wonderful story hour.
