Dr. Lorence, professor of metabolic engineering and director of the A-State Phenomics Facility, will read three books in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.
The Stories in the Forest program gives parents some quality time with their children and exposes children to some favorite books of local residents. It is sponsored by the St. Bernards Women’s Council, a group of about 120 area women who have joined together in an advisory role to give input on important healthcare issues impacting women and children. They encourage educational as well as service outreach efforts designed to make Jonesboro a better place to live, work and raise families.
Stories in the Forest is scheduled for 3 p.m. at St. Bernards Fun Forest located at The Mall at Turtle Creek on Saturday, May 5.
Stories in the Forest is free and open to the public.
