The Somerville public schools will host a free literacy event Nov. 17 at the Healey School Gymnasium for children and their families. The event, from 10 a.m. to noon, will feature raffle prizes, literary activities, a book swap, and the opportunity for parents to learn about resources available from the city to promote reading among the city’s youngsters. Also, look out for a special appearance by Curious George, the simian protagonist in the classic children’s book of the same name, by Margret and H.A. Rey.
