Traditions are passed down through generations with stories, songs, and activities.

The Mississippi Children’s Museum wants you to bring your children to experience the fun of storytelling together on January 14 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

On this special day, join us as we celebrate Mississippi’s finest storytellers from our past and listen to those with us now. This event is an artistic, literary adventure celebrating the art of storytelling in many forms with special guests, performances, and workshops. Storytelling can be told through a multitude of ways such as writing and illustrating books, acting, singing, dancing, visual arts, photography, and much more.

Activities will include:

  • Author Sarah Frances Hardy- Reading of her book Dress Me and a workshop on how she tells her story through writing and illustrations
  • Author Alice Faye Duncan- Reading of her book Yellow Dog Blues and a workshop on how to tell your story through writing
  • A performance by International Ballet Competition
