Tel Aviv's Beit Ariela is hosting its free "Authors Meet Kids" program today and tomorrow, an effort the organization initiated with children's writer Ora Morag. An impressive roster of authors will appear at the event, including Yehuda Atlas, Alona Frankel, Zohar Aviv and Dorit Orgad. Patrons will be divided into two age categories - kids between four and six will begin their story session at 10:30 a.m., while a group for seven- to10-year-olds starts an hour later. Visual entertainment will accompany the listening activities. The "Harry Potter Meets Wings" exhibition includes 74 Potter-themed illustrations done in a range of media. Kids and their parents will also be able to learn about the process of translating the Potter books into Hebrew through a 30-minute documentary based on conversations with the official Israel translator of the series, Gili Bar-Hillel.
