The Telling Room
January 20, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EST
The Freeport Public Library is finalizing details for a presentation by The Telling Room on Friday, January 20 at 6:30pm. First Lady Michelle Obama recently honored this nonprofit writing center in Portland when she presented it with the 2015 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award.
The Telling Room is a nonprofit writing center in Portland, Maine, dedicated to the idea that children and young adults are natural storytellers. Focused on young writers ages 6 to 18, they seek to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for our students. They believe that the power of creative expression can change our communities and prepare our youth for future success.
