Cashiers StoryWalk to make its debut

The first book of the new StoryWalk at the Cashiers Village Green, Cashiers, Come Play With Me!, will soon be installed with a dedication ceremony and family picnic planned for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 19, near the Village Play. 

Cashiers, Come Play With Me! is the story of how the Cashiers Village Play came to be and is written at a second-grade reading level. This original, bilingual book was written by Village Green Executive Director Ann Self, illustrated by local artist Kat Ford and translated into Spanish by Ana Crespo. It will be posted on 18 standards along the path. 

The dedication will occur at 11 a.m., with a picnic lunch served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and folding chairs. Reading lists and activity sheets will be available for children. 

The StoryWalk was made possible through a collaboration between Vision Cashiers, The Village Green, The Albert Carlton-Cashiers Library and The Literary Council of Cashiers.
