On December 10th, associate professor Brian Sturm and SILS students Katherine Lukmire, Jane McMahon and Vickie Shore will tell stories as part of the 17th Annual Winter Stories Program for Children of All Ages.  They will recount tales representing every season from Germany, West Africa, England and the Czech Republic.

Instrumental music will be provided by guitarist and SILS library assistant Kate Barnhart; flutist and Davis Library music cataloger Laurie Neuerburg; violinist Steven Wiggins; and guitarist and SILS student Carrie Stubblefield. There will also be sing-alongs.

The festivities will begin with refreshments in the Wilson Library lobby at 5 p.m. and continue with music beginning at 5:30 p.m. and seasonal tales at 5:45 p.m. in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room (2nd floor of the Wilson Library).  Plan to come out and support SILS faculty, staff and students during this exciting and heart-warming event.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a new or gently used children’s book to contribute to a book drive for the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children’s books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals. The need is especially great for Spanish-language books at the preschool level and picture books or easy readers in English.
