Nubian Square Story Walk

Frugal Bookstore, 57 Warren St, Roxbury

Head out to Roxbury’s Nubian Square for a free, fun story walk for the whole family. Kids can collect maps from the Frugal Bookstore and stroll the square’s storefronts reading Kwame Alexander’s The Undefeated, a “love letter to black life in the United States,” with powerful illustrations by Kadir Nelson. The Undefeated won the 2020 Caldecott Medal and was the winner of the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award. There will be activities to complete along the way (including giveaways from JP Licks!), and the first 50 children to complete the walk will receive a free copy of The Undefeated. The story walk will run from October 3–25.
