Once upon a time…
This week on Wednesday 20th March it is World Storytelling Day
Before the advent of the printing press, before books were widely available, and certainly long before libraries were built, stories existed. Sitting round the campfire or family hearth, our early ancestors would share tales of mythical beasts and heroic exploits.
Stories that entertained, stories that educated, stories that thrilled.
Here at Jesmond Library we like to listen stories too.
Join us on Saturday 23rd March at 5pm as we announce the winners of our Creative Writing Competition “Heroes and Villains”.
At the prizegiving our winners will treat us to a reading of their entries.
Prepare to be entertained and thrilled!
Next week on the Blog we’ll introduce you to our winning writers!
