Nov. 8 | Raising Readers Workshop

Oct 15, 2012

WKAR hosts a Raising Readers Family Fun Workshop on Thursday, November 8, at Sycamore Elementary in Holt.

Families will learn new ways to build children's reading skills while interacting with their child. Although the workshop is targeted to families and children 4-6 years old, siblings are welcome to attend also. Each child will receive a free book to take home.

May 19-20. On the City Hall Main Stage, in the children's area, and all around, you'll find WKAR at the East Lansing Art Festival.

The third broadcast season of BackStage Pass just wrapped up, with TV featuring music made in Michigan from the Chenille Sisters, Larry McCray, Bowery, and many more great, original acts.  Those 10 shows will repeat on WKAR-TV beginning this week and continuing into the summer.

Fans are wondering: will there be a fourth season? and, how can I be in the TV audience for the next shows?  We are thrilled to announce that there WILL be a fourth season of BackStage Pass.

FREE - Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. | Join WKAR,  the Cyclotron Lab, and FRIB for an evening of adventure and extreme chemistry on the MSU campus.  Communication Arts & Sciences Room 147 | RESERVE SEATS HERE

Storybook characters, performers, authors and storytelling are combined in a way to help kids learn to love reading at a free special event on Sunday, March 18, from 1-4 p.m. The event will take place at Hannah Community Center in East Lansing.
