Caspar Babypants raises money for Ballard non-profit this weekend

Posted by Doree on November 4th, 2011

If you like great kids’ music and helping children read, then have we got the event for you. This Sunday from 4-5:30 p.m. at the Phinney Neighborhood Center is “Plot for Tots,” featuring live music by local musician Caspar Babypants (a.k.a. Chris Ballew of The Presidents of the United States of America), and several local authors reading from and signing their books.

It all benefits Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program, which gives new books to at-risk children.

Authors include Kate Endle, Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park, Arthur A. Levine (U.S. editor of the Harry Potter books), Lorie Ann Grover, Samantha Vamos, and author-illustrator Wendy Wahman. Wahman also will provide face painting.

The suggested donation to Page Ahead is $5. Plot for Tots is in the PNA’s Brick Building in Community Hall.
