Coming up at the end of this month on March 31st, Literacy Volunteers of Bangor will once again be hosting their annual Literacy Tea! It's a themed event they hold every year to not only bring literacy awareness to our are, but it also serves as one of their major fundraising events for the year.

Literacy Volunteers has been serving the people of Bangor for 50 years now, with no signs of slowing down. 2018 was a big year for volunteer signups, and as an organization, served hundreds of students this year with everything from improving reading skills, to helping folks that speak English as a second language.

This year, they are featuring Maine author Liza Gardner Walsh, who has relased over a dozen books, including Fairy House Handbook, Fairy Garden Handbook, and Where Do Fairies Go When it Snows? She currently lives in Camden. And to get folks thinking about anything but snow, Liza will be reading from her book, Do Fairies Bring the Spring?

And as always, there will be dozens of tables decorated to feature all sorts of different children's books that folks can take a gander at while they're there. There will also be tons of tasty treats, and snacks, and of course..... Tea!

So mark the date, March 31st at John Bapst Memorial High School on Broadway in Bangor. Also, this event is wildly popular with the community, so tickets are only available for purchase in advance, and not at the door on the day of the event. They can purchased for $20 each at their Facebook page, website, or by calling them directly at 947-8451.
