Story Squad shared their love of world folklore at the Raleigh/Wake Young Authors Celebration on Sunday, March 2nd at Meredith College in Raleigh. What a marvel to see these proud young authors and their families, all dressed up and very serious, come together to celebrate writing and story. We talked about the values of story and then shared folktales from China and Indonesia, and a North American urban legend, and asked the young people to think about how the stories related to their lives and to their writing. Then we were able to hand out the anthology of their winning stories. These young people were justifiably proud of their work, which ranged from personal stories to short fiction to poetry. With a theme of “Happily Ever After – What’s Your Story?”, what more could a Story Squadder ask for?
