Thanks to support from Catholic Charities Food for All, children’s author Katherine Pryor will be reading from her book Sylvia’s Spinach at the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market on Friday, October 10. The readings will take place at 3:30, 4:30 and 5:30pm.
Copies of the book will be for sale at the readings, or you can order your own copy in advance from Amazon. Food stamp recipients with children can receive a complimentary copy donated by Catholic Charities simply by showing their EBT card.
If you’re on Facebook, please RSVP to the event. And if you use EBT, remember that you get an extra $2 for spending (called Fresh Bucks) for every $5 you put on your Washington Quest card at the market. So, for example, $20 instantly becomes $28 that you can spend on all the vendors’ seasonal fruit and veggies. It’s a great way to make your money go a little further each month.
