A Magical Story Time @ Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
It is our mission with this story time to promote children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. There is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are a people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above. That is why Madeline and Sam’s Magical Story Time seeks out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image. It can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age.
This story time will not only be educational, but spectacularly fun! Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books. Come out to Boneshaker Books every Sunday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are!

Dreaded Inheritance: The Crowded House @ Peace Coffee, 3262 Minnehaha Ave • 5:30pm
Are you freaked about the idea of inheriting your parents’ lifetime accumulation of stuff in the not-nearly-distant-enough future?
The emotional labor, investment of time, and direct financial costs involved in emptying a family estate on someone else’s behalf cannot be understated. Our work with families dealing with these sorts of circumstances has made us intensely aware of the guilt, exhaustion, frustration, and conflict that often arise when tackling the pig in the python: a filled house, frequently offered up as ‘your inheritance.’
Our objective is to help second generation family members anticipate, and be aware of a series of issues and stages common with this major life transition. This workshop has a specific environmental angle: we’ve seen too many families default to filling a roll-off (or four) only to deal with the emotional aftermath of intensified regret: the throwing away of truckloads of useful things that belonged to important people is something we want to help you avoid.
This will not be a silver bullet, nor will we offer platitudes. Instead, during this ‘tell it to me straight’ info session, we’ll offer a new paradigm for the possession and divestment of material goods, explain the current market for secondhand items, discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that present for those with close connections to aging family members, and provide resources to help you and your sibs empty that house with or without the property’s primary resident involved.
You’ll leave the event with a clear understanding of your options and a list of resources, contacts, and strategies intended to help you and your family keep as much of a lifetime’s treasures out of the waste stream as possible.
If you’d like to host this programming for your community, customer base, or private event, please contact us to learn more and/or schedule. Skype sessions available for those outside the Twin Cities metro.

The Twins of Franklin at Minnehaha Falls • 7pm
The Twins of Franklin (7:00-8:30pm)
The Twins of Franklin are not, in fact, twins. They are two dear friends and Minneapolis musicians – Becky Shaheen and Laura Lou. But after being regularly mistaken for them for years as best friends, roommates, and each other’s solo backup singers, they decided to embrace the label when they formed their new act.
Turns out, a decade of singing together means the pair can do some pretty neat things. Like delivering tight, delicate harmonies that can suddenly become one world conquering belts or even encouraging a group singalong when covering your favorite Goo Goo Dolls song.
To the Twins, nothing is more fun than music-ing together, as a duo or as a full six piece band. That’s the feeling you’re let in on when experiencing the Twins of Franklin’s delightful ballads and zesty uptempo folk songs live.
The Twins are in the process of recording new original songs in duo form and plan on releasing their first music as The Twins of Franklin in the Spring of 2019!
