CLiF’s Wednesday afternoon storytelling series is back! Join CLiF and one of our professional presenters Wednesdays at 1 p.m. EST from October 14 to November 18; register here. Watch the spring and summer presentations here. CLiF started these weekly sessions to: offer kids and parents a chance to take a break and share a story, highlight our amazing presenters and the activities they launched for home learners, and serve our mission to make reading and writing fun, in this case by inspiring students with encouragement from our presenters. We hope to reach kids at home and in a different classroom environment.

We will create an overview for each presentation that includes links to virtual ways to enjoy the author’s work, related literacy activities from CLiF’s resource library, and questions to guide students in preparing to “meet” the author.

Here’s the upcoming schedule:

Wednesday, October 14, 1pm – Learn more about author illustrator Jason Chin; see his presentation here
Wednesday, October 21, 1pm – Meet author illustrator Sarah Dillard; see her presentation here
Wednesday, October 28, 1pm – Meet poet Geof Hewitt; see his presentation here
Wednesday, November 4, 1pm – Meet author Rebecca Rupp; see her presentation here
Wednesday, November 11, 1pm – Meet middle grade author JL McCreedy; see here presentation here
Wednesday, November 18, 1pm – Meet author Chris Tebbetts

We appreciate this cross-section of our amazing CLiF presenters – storyteller, nonfiction, author/illustrator, poet – living, working, and finding inspiration in their Vermont and New Hampshire homes.

One reminder: CLiF is actively soliciting your ideas on how we can serve literacy needs of teachers, librarians, counselors, parents, early educators, and out-of-school-time providers. Read more or submit an idea here!

Even if you can not join us live, we encourage your students to submit questions through the blog, social media, or emailing We will post the recorded session each week. We do ask that you register for each event, so we can protect the privacy of attendees by sending Zoom information and passwords.

We look forward to continuing to share our love of reading and writing with you in this new format!
