“The Memorial Art Gallery is thrilled to partner with Hart’s Local Grocers in what is certainly an unusual connection,” said Joe Carney, MAG Director of Gallery Advancement. “This new partnership promises to be a win-win for all of us—Hart’s, MAG and the Rochester community.”

Readings will take place at Hart’s Local Grocers, 10 Winthrop Street, Rochester, New York. Free. No reservations necessary. Following the readings, there will be food-related crafts and activities for children. Events end at 11 a.m.

“We adore the Little Golden Books stories and the history and traditions they celebrate,” said Colleen Griffin-Underhill, Hart’s General Manager. “We are thrilled to partner with the Memorial Art Gallery to help make these stories and ideas come alive with some hands-on learning and story-telling, and by showcasing the everlasting images of the Little Golden Books.”
