In conjunction with the Summer Reading Challenge, Fort Bend County Libraries’ First Colony Branch Library will welcome Lucas Miller, “The Singing Zoologist,” for a fun family event, “Animals Rock,” on Tuesday, July 12, beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.
Lucas Miller, the “singing zoologist” from Austin, will celebrate oceans, cheetahs, monarch butterflies, chimichangas, and all things wild during this multimedia performance, mingling music and science in a way that will have families with children of all ages laughing, singing, moving, and learning.
Recognized as an “American Masterpiece” by the National Endowment for the Arts, Miller blends music, puppetry, projected images, and “zoological stand-up comedy” to teach about monarch butterflies, wetlands, animal defenses, endangered species, symbiosis, and other nature-related topics.
This program is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the First Colony Branch Library. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the library.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the First Colony Branch Library (281-238-2800) or the library system’s Communications Office (281-633-4734).
