Children's Program with Author Johnette Downing

9:30 a.m. | Clinton Presidential Center | Little Rock, AR
Author and musician Johnette Downing will visit the Clinton Center on May 1st to delight children with a unique musical reading experience. In conjunction with our new temporary exhibit, Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea, she will read her book, Petit Pierre and the Floating Marsh, which encourages readers to protect and preserve the wetlands. 
 
Revered internationally for her “singable” books and trickster tales, Johnette Downing offers a unique musical author visit experience for audiences by combining her books and her music. With their rhythmic cadences and sung refrains, books come alive for audiences through participation in the singing-reading connection, encouraging reluctant readers to get jazzed about literacy.
