Greywolf

Greywolf, a Native American medieval armorer, will be a featured performer for the 2015 HSPLS Children’s Summer Reading Program at nine selected public libraries on the Big Island, Kauai, Lanai and Oahu from June 17 through July 11. Admission is free.

Greywolf will present three programs “Heroes of the Classic Era,” “Women Warriors in History,” and “Cultures of the World.” With more than 20 years of weapons smithing experience, Greywolf will focus on heroes, this year’s summer reading program theme, and feature authentic handcrafted weapons and antiques, and period costumes. This 45-minute performance is suitable for all ages. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

In this year’s Children’s Summer Reading Program theme “Every Hero Has a Story,” pre-kindergarteners through 6th graders are invited to discover the “superheroes” within themselves as they read and learn about real life, fantasy and everyday heroes among us who do extraordinary things! Weekly reading incentives will include items such as school supplies, tasty treats, and a Super Hero Activity Kit for young readers to assemble Super Library-Ann, Captain Read-A-Lot and a superhero of their own creation. Free lucky drawings will also be conducted at each library for a chance to win a Back-to-School Backpack filled with handy school supplies for registered children (two prize winners per library).
