Kirsta Graf will be reading to kids at the Dunn Brothers where she works.
Kirsta Graf, a senior at Bethel University who is in the BUILD program, will be reading several stories to children at Dunn Brothers on County Road D at 10 a.m. Nov. 16. She will cozy up in the coffee shop to give back to children through the power of stories.
“I like when the kids look at the pictures,” Graf said.
Graf will not be nervous for her reading time with the kids. She is also an employee of the establishment, familiar with the hustle and bustle of the coffee shop. Although her previous reading only brought in one child, perhaps due to Minnesota’s abrupt entrance into winter the previous night, she will continue to read each Friday morning to however many kids show up.
