Fen’s Drop of Gray with Brian Wray
About this event
Fen’s Drop of Gray – Little Fen loves all of the beautiful colors in the world and loves capturing them with her treasured set of paints. One day, Fen notices a little drop of gray in her paints and can’t seem to stop it from spreading. Before long the gray is everywhere, and Fen no longer enjoys doing what she loves the most. With a little encouragement from her mother, Fen finds a way to put the colors back in her world and begin enjoying life again.

The event is free, but any donation you choose to make will go towards our literacy programs.
Here’s what your Suggested Donation can do for the Indy Reads community:
$5 – This donation covers the cost of one Reading test for one of our students. These tests are essential for connecting our adult students with the resources they need to succeed.
$10 – This donation offsets the cost of a HiSET practice test for one of our High School Equivalency students seeking a second chance at earning their diploma. US residents with a high school diploma make an average of $8,000 more per year than those without.
$25 – This donation offsets the cost of distance education software for one student for two months. As many of our Community Classrooms are virtual to keep courses as accessible as possible, these licenses are essential for helping students get the practice they need to learn and grow.
