Main Street Publishing & Something to Read Bookstore Contest

Main Street Publishing Inc., and Something to Read Bookstore presents “Artist in Your Child Exhibit” on Saturday July 11th at 10:30am.  Children between the ages 5 and 9 years old will have the opportunity to show their talent as an artist in painting, coloring, sketching, reading, or writing.

The event will be held at Something to Read Bookstore located at 215 E. Main Street in historical downtown Jackson.  All paintings submitted (with easel) are encouraged to have a poem or short story along with their painting to tell about it.  Awards will be given out.  If your child doesn’t paint, not to worry…they can bring in their favorite children’s book and read it aloud or they can just enjoy their day out with parents and other children!  They will also have the opportunity to listen to our wonderful children’s authors as they read their books on this day of fun.

Come out and see what your child has to offer!
