Telling Tales Community Events

As our year-round programming grows there are many opportunities for children and families to discover their reading superpowers. Telling Tales will offer unique programming at a variety events throughout the year including:

School Literacy Events

An increasing number of schools and school councils are hosting special Telling Tales Family Literacy events for the elementary, middle and high school. It’s a trend that we find very exciting. Schools use parental engagement funds to bring in a Telling Tales author or illustrator for an amazing, one-hour literary experience.
