Each week, children can enjoy a Story Walk around Wade Oval, courtesy of UCI’s Community Education department. Pages from children’s books will be printed on signs and placed at intervals to encourage families to walk around and read the stories. The books will change each week and will feature Black authors and illustrators. In addition to the Story Walk, UCI has partnered with the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank and other organizations to provide free books to event attendees.
