Time Out says

Holi has been celebrated in the Indian subcontinent for centuries, commemorating the arrival of spring after a cold winter. It is now celebrated around the world as a way to welcome spring, embrace inclusivity and get messy with color.

Learn more about the holiday with author Anu Sehgal, founder of The Culture Tree, who will debut her first book on Holi. This bilingual reading (Hindi and English) will tell the story of "Kahani Rangeeli" or "Colorful Story." After storytime, there will be puppet making and Holi face painting. This event is geared for ages 3-10. The event will be held at New York Public Library's 53rd Street Library, Community Room on Friday, March 10.
