Like so many other festivals and event series, the Telling Tales Festival has gone virtual this year. The program has been parceled into 13 online episodes, available on-demand once they’ve premiered. Each episode features a variety of the kind of quality, Canadian programming one expects from Telling Tales, including author talks, writing workshops, musical performances and more.
I was thrilled to be part of the Storytelling Picnic for ages 4-8. Learn about The Bur Man (and how to make your own art out of burs), go behind the scenes of 5 new Canadian picture books (including Teddy Bear of the Year), get a drawing demo and be treated to a musical performance, all from the comfort of your own home or preferred picnic space! Watch below, on YouTube, or on the Telling Tales Facebook page and be sure to enter one of the great contests Telling Tales is holding to win some fantastic books!
