On the Same Page!

Little Shop of Stories, in conjunction with Decatur Book Festival, the Decatur Education Foundation, and the Decatur Rotary Club, is really, really, really excited to announce a new, city-wide reading initiative, On the Same Page.

Our goal is to foster a community of readers by bringing families together around the same book. Each year, beginning this fall, On the Same Page will select a children's book for local children and their families to read. This special book will be promoted around the city, and Little Shop of Stories will work with schools and libraries, coordinate book groups, lead discussions, and host other book-related events. The program will culminate later in the fall with a grand finale visit from the author.

The formal announcement of this year's title will be made on Saturday, September 3rd at the Children's Stage during the AJC Decatur Book Festival.
