Susan Verde

Susan Verde will be the featured author at this year’s Hooked on Books...and the Arts, Too! event at Chanhassen High School on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Hooked on Books … and the Arts, Too! returns for its 13th year from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 2.

The free, community-wide celebration supports literacy and the arts. The event has been an ongoing partnership between Eastern Carver County Community Education and the Carver County Library system.

The event integrates literacy and the arts in an imaginative and innovative way. Susan Verde is the 2019 featured author. Memories are made for the participants, especially preschool through fifth-grade students and their families.

According to organizers, “heroes are made out of authors, illustrators, dancers, musicians and artists, and inspiration takes place along the way.”

This project is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Hooked on Books...and the Arts, Too! will be held at Chanhassen High School, 2200 Lyman Blvd., Chanhassen. Contact Lori Kendall, and 952-556-6186, with any questions.
