Jackson County resident Josie Williams will be guest storyteller at a special children’s storytime at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 24, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.
Williams is co-creator (with her sister-in law Kim Williams) of Shert: The Helping Hand Glove Puppet, a book-and-puppet combination for children. Shert is an acronym for Safety, Helping, Encouraging, Relating, Teaching. The simple glove puppet is both toy and teaching tool.
Williams will read from the book, Shert: Goes to the Park and introduce children to puppets. 828.586.9499.
