National Literacy Project Telling its Story in Evansville

Originally published in Evansville Courier & Press (Evansville, IN), August 30, 2007

Keywords: elementary school, art, personal storytelling


Mary Jo Huff laughs along with the students at Daniel Wertz Elementary School during her visit to the school as part of a national literacy program called The StoryBox Project. Huff, a local storyteller, entertained the students before they created their stories to go into the Story Box.
