Winter can be a dull season if you're not into Nordic sporting events. It's cold outside, the kids are restless and the current weather patterns aren't conducive to snowman building or snowball fights.
Lucky for you, the Morrison Center Family Reading Series exists, so gather everyone for a reading of Rapunzel and let your hair down. This is a family event, so you can be confident there will be no Quentin Tarantino-like outbursts of profanity.
2 p.m. $7. Morrison Center Recital Hall, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise, 208-426-1609, boisestatetickets.com.
