StoryWalk® Festival

June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A full day of fun is planned during our inaugural StoryWalk® Festival!

Featuring a book by renowned children’s author, Lindsay Barrett George (photo at left). From a very young age, Ms. George found herself drawing—animals, friends, family and nature. With an active imagination, she created several wordless picture books, and later began to write children’s books (and illustrate them).

She has published 18 beautiful and delightful books, most featuring her beloved animals—all kinds of animals, from bunnies to beavers to Boomer the goose, and many more!

In 2013, The Pennsylvania School Librarians presented Ms. George with the 2013 Outstanding Pennsylvania Author/Illustrator Award.

Check back for a full schedule of events and all the details of this fun family event!
