Telling Tales 2016

Tuesday 15 November 2016
Telling Tales is a yearlong reading campaign dedicated to promoting literacy and inspiring a love of reading. If you know anything about me, and my career so far, you'll know that both of these things are monumentally important to me. Each September, Telling Tales culminates in a one-day festival that brings thousands of young book lovers and their parents to Westfield Heritage Village. If you haven't been, Westfield Heritage Village is "a living history museum with over 30 historic buildings surrounded by 324 acres of woodlands and meadows with several well-marked nature trails." Owned and operated by the Hamilton Conservation Authority, Westfield has, among its many highlights, a church, a general store, a blacksmith's shop, and a number of homesteads.

I've blogged about Telling Tales before, but because it is so special to me, I thought it deserved a revisit. We're incredibly lucky to have this unique literary festival in the Greater Hamilton Area. You don't have to be a kid (or have kids) to enjoy it — and I'm the perfect example of that.

Here are a few of my Telling Tales highlights, among them a performance by Hamilton Youth Poets.
