Kids’ instrument-making workshop set for Saturday in Moscow

Children can create their own instrument Saturday, June 25, during a visit with author Annette Bay Pimentel, of Moscow.

Masks are required at the 11 a.m. event at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 S. Main St.

Pimentel will read from her new children’s book, “Before Music: Where Instruments Come From,” which explores the ways people have used the materials in nature to create musical instruments.

She is the author of “All the Way to the Top,” “Girl Running,” a Junior Library Guild selection, and “Mountain Chef,” which won the Carter G. Woodson Award, according to a news release from event organizer BookPeople of Moscow.
