A Must Read, Madapple by Christina Meldrum

This is a great book for older teens and adults alike.
If you like court room drama, botany, religon, and mythology you are going to love this book.
I am not going to tell you too much, because I want you to read it.

This is her first novel, I can't wait for the next.

World Storytelling Day 2009

We Celebrated World Storytelling Day, with the After School Storytelling Club

The Super Sonic Celtic Guinea Pigs of Awesomeness!

Ten storytellers ranging in age from 8 to 12 years old preformed 
Stories for All Ages
We have been working very hard and eating lots of popcorn while we explore the art of storytelling.  We spent about 8 weeks having fun learning about story.  This was the first public performance for about half of the kids who participated, the other half have been telling stories for ~ a year.  We heard everything from the "Shepherd and the Wolf" to the "Coffin That Wouldn't Stop".  Everyone did a fantastic job!  We had about 40 in the audience.  It was wonderful to have such a great turnout, of family,  friends and storytime kids.
Thank you all to a job well done!

Remember Friday March 20th is World Storytelling Day, have you told someone a story today?

We did it!

Community Center Here We Come!

Our campaign to save the old town hall was a success, they have given us till 2011 to create a viable community center.

I am currently working on collecting oral histories of our neighborhood and finding a treasure of stories. Hopefully I will be able to up load my movie when it is complete.
