The Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD's Summer Reading Kick-off event will be held at Barnes & Noble near Northeast Mall on May 5. Grapevine author Janee Trasler (_Caveman: A B.C. Story) will be available to sign her books, and she will present a dinosaur puppet show with Mrs. Zorn at 10:30 that day. Please plan to attend! Your purchases at the event will help our district's libraries add books to their collections.
