7th Annual Storytelling Harvest to take place at Lake Erie College

Academics,

On Saturday, Oct. 10, Lake Erie College education students and volunteers will come together for the 7th Annual Storytelling Harvest to read storybooks to young children ages 3-10 from Painesville City Schools.

A free literacy event, the Storytelling Harvest will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the College Green behind College Hall on the Lake Erie College campus. Beneath the beautiful trees, participating children will have the opportunity to listen to and interact with storytellers, all with the goal of instilling a love of reading amongst our youth. To encourage further reading after the event ends, each child who participates will receive a free book.

"The Storytelling Harvest is a culminating event for the Growing Readers Program, a collaborative project between the Painesville City Local Schools Family Resource Center (FRC) and the LEC Education Department’s early childhood pre-service licensure candidates,” said Dr. Katharine Delavan, associate professor and coordinator of early childhood education at the College. "The FRC is directed by LEC alumna Amber Torres Gonzales (Adache).”

In the event of rain, the Storytelling Harvest will be moved to the Arthur S. Holden Center on campus. For more information, contact Dr. Delavan at kdelavan@lec.edu.
