Future Literati

| June 2, 2014 | Parties

The fifth annual Milk + Bookies story time celebration was a charity event for the books. Literature-loving celebrities— including actors Julie Bowen, Jason Biggs and Amanda Peet— gathered at the Skirball Cultural Center with their child counterparts to support youth-geared learning and literacy promotion. “I was a huge reader as a kid; it was one of the things that my mom was really big on and something I want to hand off to my kids,” says Bowen, who came with her boys. Life-size characters from favorite children’s books like The Cat in the Hat greeted guests, who enjoyed crafts and a storytelling session led by Scandal’s Dan Bucatinsky and Dharma & Greg's Jenna Elfman. And of course, a day with Milk + Bookies came complete with chocolate chip cookies aplenty. -Photos by Donato Sardello and Elli Papayanopoulos
