Children 6 and older can read to a non-judgmental, furry listener who won’t laugh if the reader stumbles or makes a mistake. Children are asked to select their own reading material before their scheduled session. Parents can register their child (two weeks in advance) for a 10-15 minute reading session by calling 770-591-1491.

Experience an immersive virtual reality feature! Notes On Blindness (Rated “E” for Everyone) is a journey into a world beyond sight. In 1983, after steady deterioration, John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of this change, he documented his experiences on audio cassette. These original diary recordings form the basis of this project, an interactive non-fiction using new forms of storytelling to explore his cognitive and emotional experience of blindness. For all ages; children 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
