Five years ago, the University Libraries began a series to bring children's book authors and storytellers to campus. The goal? To reach out to area school children and to teach future educators about using stories in the classroom.
This year, Bobby Norfolk, co-author of "Anansi and the Pot of Beans," "The Moral of the Story: Folktales for Character Development" and "Anansi Goes to Lunch," will share his tales with area school children and the public. The event is made possible by the Pam and David Sprinkle Children's Author and Storyteller's Series Fund.
Alumnae from the Class of 1957 meet monthly in memory of Peggy Welch Lambeth.
