Catch a Story Tour - Hawera

Monday, December 03, 2012 12:00 AM

Free Storytelling Performance at the Hawera Public Library, 3.30 pm.

This December, storyteller/author, Tanya Batt and Hawera-based illustrator/artist Helen Bacon hit the road in the 'Little Red Riding' truck to promote their two new picture books, 'My Dad's a Dragon Catcher' and 'Catching Fish'.

The 'Catch a Story Tour' is no ordinary book launch. Helen and Tanya, self-confessed frock-o-holics will be fabulously costumed and their show includes storytelling, music and art pieces created by Helen.

The two stories will be presented using a unique illustrated storytelling format called 'The Story House'. Tanya believes storytelling should actively encourage an audience's participation.

As part of each session, children will have a chance to 'Catch and Create' their own story using the Story House.

Venue: Hawera Public Library
