The Telling Room in Portland, Maine

October 30, 2011

 

 

This past weekend, I headed to the Portland Public Library to check out the AIGA Maine’s annual show at the Lewis Gallery and I ended up learning about another cool project happening in Portland, the Telling Room. The Telling Room is a writing center for children and young adults (posters describing the program are on display on the lower level of the library). Not only do they help encourage literacy, and help children and young adults (often from underserved groups) to find their voices, they also offer workshops for adults, host storytelling events and bring “super famous” authors to Maine.
