I wish an RSVP choice was "Cannot attend" instead of "Will not attend." The latter sounds so negative, as if I'm refusing. As a librarian I fully support your taking this stand. I just won't be able to leave my NH library to be there--but will join you in spirit!

Grand Prize for South Shore Grand Slam Story Slam generously donated by Nicolette Heavey and Stories In The Streets (A Maine Get Away)

Stories in the Streets in an outreach literacy program that focuses on families in at-risk areas and fosters community engagement in storytelling by: 1) Creating opportunities for public storytelling wherever families gather — a farmer’s market, laundromat, or food line; and, 2) Offering storytelling workshops that raise family engagement in literacy, cultural awareness and community understanding.  The program is currently active in Lawrence, Brockton and Randolph.
