Mission Statement

In less than a year, the idea of two women wanting to tell stories, create wonderful costumes and encourage reading and imagination has quickly grown into a new love affair with books. StoryMobs has been gathering interest from libraries, bookstores, publishers, writers, families and book-lovers from coast to coast. StoryMobs is produced by Gretel Meyer Odell and Roxanne Deans. Both women see this initiative as a way of inspiring a sense of community and nurturing literacy and imagination.

More importantly, it’s always a ton of FUN!

And we’re excited to reawaken the inner Pirate, Princess, and Wild Thing in a few grown ups while we’re at it.

Description

StoryMobs are where great books meet flash mobs with a dash of 'Rocky Horror Picture Show’ thrown in. A story mob is inspired by an exceptional children’s book and allows for participation in a variety of ways including costumes & props, creative play and reading from the book. StoryMobs warmly welcome the involvement of book-lovers, flash mob-enthusiasts and fun folks of ALL AGES. StoryMobs is a free event.

Like other flash mobs, StoryMobs often appear out of nowhere in an apparently spontaneous way, in a busy public space, at a (quietly) designated time and then disperse without any additional fanfare after they have finished.
