Would it be so wrong for a grown woman to go see a program of old-school Sesame Street classics by herself? Because I just know my boy’s going to break my heart and say he doesn’t want to go. I mean, he’s NINE (eye roll)!
But maybe there’s a fan of the Street in your house—a little someone who can appreciate some good muppet-centric humor. If so, here’s what you need to know: Saturday morning’s screening of Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days is part of of Hennepin County Library’s Childish Film Series. That means there will also be snacks, hands-on activities and a live pre-show performance (this time, by dancer Leah Nelson). And while many of the Childish Film programs make the rounds to different libraries, Saturday’s screens at the Central Library downtown Minneapolis.
If you go, please send my love to Grover.

FYI, I’ve always been intrigued by the “urbanism” of Sesame Street.
