Friday September 14th, 5pm – 7pm
Brattleboro Museum and Arts Center, 10 Vernon Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301
Join us to celebrate the launch of THE BENEFITS OF BEING AN OCTOPUS. This family-friendly party will also serve as a benefit for the Women’s Freedom Center. Enjoy book-themed foods like yogurt, saltines with Easy Cheese, and chocolate pudding, as well as cupcakes with octopuses on top! Listen to a short reading from the novel, followed by a conversation between Ann Braden and Library Director Starr Latronica. You’ll be able to find out more about the important work the Women’s Freedom Center does, and you’ll get to show off your best octopus dance on the dance floor. There will be octopus tattoos, octopus stickers, octopus fun facts, octopus selfies, and don’t forget about the octopus cupcakes. A fun time will be had, no matter how many arms you have!
