Please join us in welcoming Ann Pelo - author, educator, and former Hilltop faculty member - for a discussion about developing Ecological Identity in young children. Ann will share stories from her latest book "The Goodness of Rain" which chronicles her year caring for Dylan (also a Hilltop alumna) and considers the possibilities for connecting young children to their natural world.|

7:00-8:30 reading and discussion
Registration for this event is free, but we would greatly appreciate donations to help us put on this special evening and support Hilltop's programs - there will be a donation basket at the door.
