    Join us for a lively story time inspired by art. Come look, listen, and move as we make connections between art, nature, and children’s books in our beautiful outdoor garden theater. Best for ages 2 and up with adult caregivers.

    This session is presented by our friends at Drag Queen Story Hour. Join featured reader Stormie Daie to read books that celebrate all the wonderful ways you are you!

    Stormie is a daughter of Durham’s House of Coxx, the first drag family of Durham, NC. As a queen she always strives to bring joy to her fans, the Stormie Chasers. Whether twirling and twisting like the wind on stage, showing her lightning-fast wit on the mic, or hosting Science with Stormie, where she teaches the amazing wonders of science, Stormie is a maelstrom of passion, education, and lookin’ good! As a DQSH queen, she is always ready to READ the children and have a great time learning and laughing!

    About Drag Queen Story Hour

    Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like these, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress-up is real.
