Designed for age 6 and older and their families. Children under the age of 10 should be accompanied by an adult for safety. You will need to bring a device or gadget (phone, tablet, etc.) with the Pokemon Go app installed to participate.

Author Visit: Keli Stewart
Wednesday, Aug. 31, 6-8 p.m., Oak Park Public Library
Hear author Keli Stewart read from her debut poetry collection, Small Altars. In the traditions of Gwendolyn Brooks’ A Street in Bronzeville, Lucille Clifton’s Good Woman, and Nikki Giovanni’s Love Poems, Small Altars renders a self-portrait in spirals and snapshots—sometimes with humor, sometimes with sentiment and memory—about the body, desire, motherhood and place around her identity as a Black woman while awakening keen observations of her ancestors with a griot’s voice. Register now at oppl.org/calendar. 834 Lake St., Oak Park.
