Go Barefoot for Literacy!


A lot can happen in five years.

We’ve professed our love for Barefoot Books before, and this weekend the globally minded publisher celebrates its 5th birthday with their “Go Barefoot for Literacy!” weekend-long party at the flagship store in Cambridge. Festivities kick off this evening at 6pm with live music, champagne, and snacks; through the rest of the weekend, hear live music with internationally acclaimed children’s performer Fred Penner, engage in arts and crafts projects with award-winning illustrator Clare Beaton, and hear Barefoot stories regaled by professional storytellers. Click here for the schedule of events.

These events are free to attend, but no doubt you’ll find it tough to resist the amazing selection of books and toys at the store. And you'll feel good about those purchases; a portion of the weekend's proceeds will be donated to the local literacy organization ReadBoston.
