The Story*Book Fair: cerebrating a decade of free literacy programs.

Award winning writers and storytellers will gather to share our great oral and written traditions with you for this annual promotion of local talent and multi-generational literacy activities. Tri-Cities and regional residents will enjoy a day of fun for everyone on April 28, 2018 from 11am to 2pm at 322 W. Watauga Ave. Johnson City. The schedule will include presentations by authors and storytellers, along with fun family activities.
