Telling Tales

Telling Tales is an annual family festival of stories at Westfield Heritage Village in Rockton, Ontario. Now in its 11th year, Telling Tales brings together English, French, and Indigenous authors, artists, musicians, and poets that engage even the most reluctant readers. Through stories we bond with our family, our friends, and our heroes. Burlington Public Library is thrilled to support Telling Tales 2019.

Join the Summer Reading Club and you'll have a chance to win the Grand Prize to become the 'Burlington Public Library Telling Tales VIP'! Check out the Telling Tales booklist below that features authors and illustrators you could meet as our Very Important Person.
