Don't miss out on a storytime event on Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Johnston Public Library's Large Meeting Room.
Beginning at 10:30 a.m., it will be centered around Hot Tamale Louie: Telling Stories Without Words by John Rapson, who was inspired by an article in New Yorker by Kathryn Schulz, "Citizen Khan."
This story tells the tale of a teenager who left his home in Afghanistan and settled in Wyoming in 1907, where he had to assimilate and become an American.
An eye-opening look into what it means to takes to be an American has never been more aptly told than in today's climate of politic debate about immigration.
Rapson is a professor of music at University of Iowa.
The event will be followed by tamales from Tamale's Industry.
