“StoryWalk in the Park” is underway at Joyner Park

Monday, March 1, 2021 - 12:45pm

March is National Reading Month and the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is celebrating by offering “StoryWalk in the Park” at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road.

StoryWalk in the Park is an innovative and interactive way for readers of all ages to enjoy a story and the outdoors at the same time. Pages from “Brave Enough for Two” by local author Jonathan Voss are displayed on posts along the trail that runs through Joyner Park’s pecan grove. As you stroll along the path, you are directed to the next page in the story. StoryWalk engages young readers and is an effective way to practice active reading skills.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

The PRCR Department is partnering with Page 158 Books throughout March to celebrate National Reading Month. As part of the effort, the PRCR Department and Page 158 Books will offer books from local authors at Joyner Park for families to enjoy.
