Community: Storytelling with the Children's Literacy Foundation

Expect the recovery from Tropical Storm Irene to take many shapes and forms. In its hard-hit hometown of Waterbury, the Children's Literacy Foundation is working with the Thatcher Brook Primary School to host a storytelling session with Vermont author Natalie Kinsey-Warnock, who will present her book Nora's Ark about Vermont's 1927 flood. CLiF hopes the event, in turn, will launch a project giving flood-affected kids an opportunity to write about their Irene experiences. "Even with all the press coverage of the Vermont floods, not a lot of kids have had a chance to tell their personal stories," says CLiF executive director Duncan McDougall. "We want the children of Waterbury to have a chance to write about their recent experiences and share them with other kids — and adults — across the state."
