It’s the Year of the Dog—or Dawg, if you prefer—and the State Botanical Garden helped usher in the Lunar New Year with a celebration Saturday featuring crafts, food, storytelling, music and more.
Flagpole photographer Jessica Silverman captured the festivities, but if you missed them, don’t worry: more are on the way, thanks to a Big Read project sponsored by the University of Georgia Department of Language and Literacy Education and the National Endowment for the Arts. This year’s Big Read is based around To Live by Yu Hua and the work of the young-adult novelist Grace Lin.
