MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Mount Vernon children participating in the city summer reading program will have the opportunity to get immersed in literature at a book signing courtesy of “Mount Vernon Reads.”
At 11 a.m. on July 24, Mount Vernon Mayor Ernest Davis will lead a discussion about fire safety, reading excerpts from Lauren J. Wynn’s children’s book “Hugs Talks Fire Safety.” Wynn will then sign copies of her book and answer questions from campers.
Wynn, a Mount Vernon native, has published a pair of children’s books and a series of poems about fire safety that have been featured on safety websites.
Following the reading and signing, children will have the opportunity to check out a fire truck, and following the reading there will be a meet-and-greet with firefighters that were named in the book.
“Mount Vernon Reads” is part of the Mount Vernon summer camps Park Activation Program.
