On Saturday, you can get a peek at what Deb Pettid and Pete Cowdin, owners of the now-closed Reading Reptile children’s bookstore in Brookside, have planned for their future children’s book “explorastorium.”
Agee will be at the event, and there will also be refreshments, music and family activities.
The 4,000-square foot, two-story-high space gives visitors the feeling of walking through the pages of the book.
The temporary gallery, which will only be in the space for three months, is intended as a fundraising tool to give prospective local and national donors an idea of what the Rabbit Hole can be.
From April 15 to May 20, the gallery will be open to the public from 4-8 p.m. Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and noon-4 p.m. Sundays.
The Saturday, April 9 event, will be from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at 400 E. 17th St. There is a $5 suggested donation per person.
