By: Joshua Glenn | Categories: Kudos

Boston- and New York-area friends,

If you’ve missed the other appearances I’ve made, in support of my new book UNBORED, this fall, there are a few more opportunities coming in December.

UNBORED provides over 300 pages of activity ideas for kids, including classic science experiments, crafts and upcycling, board game hacking, code-cracking, geocaching, skateboard repair, yarn bombing – and more!

Here are the events:

  • December 16, in Brooklyn (NY): Kid-friendly event at The powerHouse Arena, 3 pm
