Telling Tales: A Festival of Stories

On Sunday, September 18th the third annual Telling Tales Festival took place in Westfield Heritage Village in Rockton, Ontario. Hundreds attended and there was no shortage of things to do in this replica of a 19th century village which was also a filming location for the popular Anne of Green Gables film series. Many authors including Tim Beiser, Jo Ellen Bogart, and Robin Muller read from their books and the staff of the Village demonstrated crafts and trades that were common for the time.

On behalf of everyone at Tundra Books, a huge thanks to the organizers, staff and volunteers of the Telling Tales Festival and of Westfield Heritage Village for a fantastic day!

Author and artist, Robin Muller presents original sketches of his stunning picture book, The Nightwood, outside the One Room School House.

Author and Storyteller, Itah Sadu performs to a rapt audience at the Bandstand.

The general store was well stocked with candy and other treats!
