A USA Benefit for the Children’s Book Network in Cape Town and Clanwilliam, South Africa
What it means to have friends! The USA storytellers listed below suggested raising funds for toolboxes (themed boxes of books and activities) for CBN – and they always do what they say they are going to do! We look forward to more information and pictures.
Featuring Storytellers: Carol Birch, Therese Folkes Plair & Melissa Heckler
Please join us for an afternoon of storytelling to raise funds for workshops that bring stories, music, joy to hundreds of children.
Light refreshments served.
More fund raising opportunities will be available to purchase “toolboxes” for the children to continue reading activities.
When: April 18, 2015; 3:00p.m.-4:30 p.m.

Children’s Book Network (CBN) began early in 2012, the dream of founders Gçina Mhlophe, Lesley Beake and Sindiwe Magona. Our purpose is to bring books to children and children to books – to make reading cool. We work through this website – an ever expanding resource – and through community workshops planned with, by and for the children. https://www.childrensbook.co.za
