The StoryTellers Guild Fundraising Luncheon

Over 100 members and guests of the StoryTellers Guild gathered at The Community House for their annual fundraising luncheon featuring award winning children’s author and illustrator, Wong Herbert Yee. Book Beat of Oak Park coordinated a book sale and donated a portion of the sales to the Guild. The Guild’s mission is to improve childhood literacy through the art of storytelling in underserved schools. The money raised at the luncheon will be utilized to purchase new books for underserved schools.
