Celebrate the end of our "Every Hero Has a Story" summer reading program with the magic and juggling of Flow Circus!

Not all superheroes are born with special powers...
Join performer Paul Miller as he learns that super skills like juggling and magic can be mastered by finding resources, setting goals, and practicing. One book starts him on a playful journey that leads to a lifetime of fighting boredom while challenging himself and others to reach new heights.

Summer Reading Grand Prize winners will be announced. Refreshments to follow the show, generously provided by Whole Foods Greenwich.

All ages welcome.

No tickets required.

I recommend for kids that you shouldn't read this book unless you like getting stuff and giving it away. It was not a good book for me, because I like to save everything.

This book really shows what it means to be brave and have courage. Harry will do anything to save his best friend's sister from the evil monster who lies inside the Chamber of Secrets. You will also laugh and fall in love with the amzing twists wherever in the story.
