The Berks History Center will host a free family program with local author Kay Haring on June 22, 2017 from 1-3PM at the Berks History Center, located at 940 Centre Ave. Reading, PA 19601.

Kay Haring, author of the newly released book, “Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing,” will read her new book and share about her brother’s lasting legacy as a world-renowned artist from Berks County. During the event families and children are invited to enjoy a hands-on craft activity.

Admission to the program is free however reservations are required. Please call 610-375-4375 to reserve your space. Admission includes access to Berks History Center’s Museum exhibits where participants will have an opportunity to explore the treasures of Berks County’s extraordinary past. In order to tour the museum, program participants are encouraged to arrive at least an hour prior to the start of the program. All ages are welcome.

Kay Haring’s one-of-a-kind book, “Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing,” explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist’s great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world. Reproductions of Keith’s signature artwork appear in scenes boldly rendered by Robert Neubecker. This is a story to inspire, and a book for Keith Haring fans of all ages to treasure.
