Big Night is back! Join The Telling Room on Thursday, June 16th at the Deering Oaks bandstand from 5:00pm – 6:30pm for our annual celebration of young writers, including a book fair with sales and signings, author readings, a scavenger hunt, and award announcements. We will be honoring all the students who have been published with The Telling Room this year while launching three new anthologies: Footprints and Stepping Stones, by authors ages 6-11, as well as this year’s themed anthology, Echoes from the Basement. This event is free and open to all, and we invite you to pull up a camp chair or a picnic blanket to enjoy the festivities!
