Storywalk with The Man with the Violin
Storywalk® is an innovative way to get people of all ages to take a stroll while reading children’s picture books. Pages of a book are transformed into wind-and-rain-proof signs that are then placed on a playground, at a fair or music festival. The project originated in Vermont and Storywalks have now taken place in every American state and eleven other countries.
This summer (August 19-21), the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library will include a Storywalk as part of the area’s 41st Annual Summerfolk Festival. And what better picture book to feature at a music festival than . . . The Man with the Violin!
If you’ll be in the area then, be sure to check it out!
