One of my favorite things about The King's English Bookstore is their eagerness to host children's activities. When I asked about what activities the bookstore offered, I was given an impressive list longer than my local library.
Some of the fabulous activities great for boys The King's English Bookshop is participating in:
- A guest appearance and signing by Christopher Paolini.
- A reading and book signing by debut author Keir Graff.
- An appearance by the Salt Lake Acting Company for a sneak peek preview of the upcoming children's production of "How I Became a Pirate."
- Visits from Santa on Saturdays from 12-2 p.m.
