At 11:30 a.m., Cathy Breen from the Mary Riley Styles Public Library will share books, songs, rhymes, and movement activities and demonstrate how story time reinforces the life-long love of learning.

At noon, Stephanie Elms, a representative from the Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers, will conduct a session on how to foster relationships with books.

At 1 p.m., Nicole Dufort, a Random House Children’s representative, will discuss new books that integrate language arts selections with topics such as history, science, and social studies.

At 2 p.m., children’s author Jacqueline Jules will read from her award-winning book “Unite or Die: How Thirteen States Became a Nation,” which traces the challenges, conflicts, and compromises that shaped the U.S. Constitution.

At 3 p.m., a veteran drama teacher from Creative Cauldron will take guests into the woods on a journey full of myth and mystery with scenes from their upcoming show, “Tales from the Brothers Grimm.”
