Susan Jasper, Telling Tales Festival Chair & Founder, was the guest speaker at CFUW-Hamilton’s November 17, 2015, meeting. There was considerable excitement and enthusiasm from the audience about Hamilton’s own free, one-day, family-friendly, outdoor festival (annually in September) and the association’s year-round commitment to promoting literacy and inspiring a love of reading.

Part of Telling Tales commitment involves donating back to local literacy organizations. This week, Telling Tales donated $12,000 to three worthy recipients.
