Now that we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, Irene Levy Baker, author of “100 Things To Do In Philadelphia” and “Unique Eats & Eateries of Philadelphia,” will tell you about all the fun things to do in our region.

As you emerge back into the world, she’ll help you have safe adventures and create fun family memories. She’ll describe newly-opened attractions, secret destinations even long-time locals may not know about and share  some delicious stories about the area’s restaurant scene – based on the newly-published second edition of “100 Things To Do In Philadelphia.” Irene will help you make every day count and make sure you never waste your free time doing laundry.

We will join our friends from William Jeanes Library for this joint virtual program with a local author!
