Hear a story about Chinese immigration and build your own paper kite.

Join Yale Repertory Theatre for a special story time and kite-making activity. We will be reading Paper Son: The Inspiring Story of Tyrus Wong, Immigrant and Artist by Julie Leung and Chris Sasaki, which tells the story of Chinese-American illustrator and kite-maker Tyrus Wong. Inspired by Wong’s work as a kite-maker, each child will get a chance to construct and take home their own paper kite. 

This program is happening in conjunction with the Yale Repertory Theatre’s production of The Far Country by Lloyd Suh, a story of Chinese immigration in the early 20th-century and making a family in a far country. This production is not suited for children, but for interested parents there will be more information available about the show and how to get tickets through the library.
