Martin Luther King, Jr. was born this day in 1929. Every year we commemorate this day and recognize the man, the minister and the activist that led the civil rights movement between the years 1954 until his death in 1968. At Owl Books, we like to encourage our young readers to learn about some of these great leaders even if they may not learn about them in school. They helped shape and define a nation that many of us call home. We hope that you too can help carry on the history of our past notable leaders. This year we celebrate his birthday on Monday 21, January 2019.
We’ll be hosting a storytime reading at 13:00 at our store on Saturday 19 January and we hope you can join us!
