When you listen to a story, what do you see? What does the character, or the setting look like? Use your imagination to draw what you hear during this session presented by Listening Library and featuring audio clips from classic children’s books. Take home some new art for your fridge and tips and ideas for having fun with audiobooks on your next family road trip!

2:15 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: 1E15 (Lower Level, Under Glass Atrium)

A fun new way to play with storytime! Award-winning audiobook narrators January LaVoy (Grimm’s Fairy Tales) and Marc Thompson (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back So You Want to be a Jedi?) take turns at the mic, adding a unique twist to the art of telling a story. But they’ll need your help to make these stories laugh-out-loud funny. Audience participation is encouraged at this interactive, imaginative storytelling session.
