Telling Tales

For more than a decade, Telling Tales has celebrated a love of reading and the important role that Canadian storytellers play in shaping our children’s futures. We believe that through inspiring a love of reading, stories can change people’s lives. Our signature festival and year-round interactive programming for children and youth invite children to read, write and imagine. By raising awareness of the importance of literacy in our communities we are helping to create the next generation of leaders. Every time we light the spark that inspires a greater love of reading in a child, we are one step closer to fulfilling our mission. “Our mission is to deliver outstanding literary programming for children and youth that raises awareness of the importance of literacy in our communities.” “Our vision is to inspire a love of reading and improve literacy in children and youth.”
