Fairy Tales with Meg Allison - April 12th, 11:00 am

The last installment of our 2013-2014 Author-Educators talk series is happening Saturday, April 12th at 11:00 am in the Children's Room. Meg Allison, Moretown Elementary School Librarian, will talk about fairy tales.

Last summer, Meg received a Global Teacher Fellowship award to travel to France and Italy and study the homes of fairy tales like Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Sleeping Beauty. You can read an article about the Fellowship here.

Meg returned with many ideas for the elementary school classroom. This February, WCAX covered one in-school "expedition" in their story Welcome to Paris.

Join us on the 12th to find out more about France, Italy, fairy tales and using them in schools. This talk is free and open to the public. We will have discounts on books and certificates available for teachers who are able to use this workshop for continuing education credits.

This will be the final event of the school year - but we'll have a few more articles posted before the summer, and events will start up again in the fall.
