Join us as we welcome award-winning children’s author Dianna H. Aston and Fort Worth Public Library Director, Manya Shorr, along with local literacy and pollinator advocates, in a day of free family activities to honor the first StoryWalk® to take place in the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. The new StoryWalk® will feature the book, "A Butterfly Is Patient", and will highlight the newly replanted Pollinator Pathway connecting BRIT to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Author Dianna H. Aston will make presentations on the creation of this book and be available for book signings.
