Join Fowler Educators for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our special exhibition India’s Subterranean Stepwells with the New York Times bestselling picture book A Bucket of Blessings by Kabir Sehgal. Children of all ages are invited to follow Monkey and his friends as they search for water to help end the drought plaguing an Indian village, where they learn a little-known legend about peacocks who can make it rain by dancing. After the reading, explore how stepwells are used to store water in India on a family-friendly guided tour with Fowler Educators.
Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler Educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of most months. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.

Since the 5th century, stepwells have served as water-harvesting systems that descend into the earth and enable communities to access the water table or rainwater gathered below. A selection of 46 photographs by journalist Victoria Lautman captures the diversity and sublime beauty of these architectural marvels.
