Upper Hudson Library System and Mohawk Valley Library System bring the best outside and inside presenters together to demonstrate, and teach key storytime skills. A special focus this year is flannel board stories, presented by local maven Debbie Sternklar. You’ll leave the workshop with a flannel board and a story to tell with it!
As an extra treat from 12:00 – 1:00, we have Suzanne Bloom, author/illustrator of Geisel honor book A Splendid Friend Indeed. Suzanne will share information about her creative process and the ins and outs of making books. There will be books available for signing after her presentation.
