A benefit for The Children's Book Bank


Tell Me A Story was an exciting, memorable evening celebrating the transformative power of books. Through their short, personal stories about "A Book that Blew My Mind," our amazing storytellers illustrated how books shape our lives—sending us on adventures, affirming who we are, giving us warm fuzzies, transporting us to other places, and challenging our thinking.



Thank you to all our supporters who contributed to

the success of the evening!
