Texas Osages to host reading event at Cultural Center

BARK (Books Are really Keen) is coming to the Osage Cultural center. 

The BARK reading program was created by Kendall Chapman-Ryan to promote reading among Osage youth. The 11-year-old Osage will be hosting the event with her father, Jim Ryan, Nov. 20 at 2 p.m.

“This program is for beginning readers and ‘want to be’ readers,” Ryan said. “Every child who attends will be able to choose a free book and have some fun with music, singing and games.”

There will also be readings by Kendall and her father. Cookies and juice will be served. The program is intended for children age four to seven.
