BSF START Family Book Club (In-Person)

Blue Star Families (BSF) will host a Family Book Club on starting on Wednesday, February 2, 3:30-5:00pm at the USCG-Fort Wadsworth Family Meeting Center in Staten Island.

You're invited to participate in START (Serving, Thriving, and Reading Together)! This is a free, unique humanities-based and family-focused program that builds community among military and civilian families with children ages 5 to 10. You'll enjoy six* storytelling, reading, and discussion sessions led by a storyteller and storylover, covering award-winning children’s books on topics such as family, courage, and community.

*Please note this family reading session takes place over six weeks. BSF wants you and your family to get the most out of this fabulous program, so please plan to be at all of the afternoon sessions. We know many families will be interested in participating and want to make sure this is something you are committed to doing.

The START Family Book Club will be held on the following six Wednesdays:

February 2, 9, 16

March 2, 9, 16
