The Orange Story Tent Contest

The Vernon branch of Okanagan Regional Library is very orange these days. Big orange tarps cover most of the first floor. What is going on behind them? Is the world becoming orange? Are all the books going to taste like oranges now? Are the words extra juicy? Are the workmen building something extra special for us back there? Is it going to be a zoo full of orange animals? Only you can tell us, with your imagination. Kids under the age of 15, we want your stories and your poems, and your drawings of the world behind the big orange tent. We’ll help you, too, on Monday afternoons after school, or anytime you want to come by and talk to our writer in residence, Harold Rhenisch. He’s helped a lot of young writers and many young adult and children’s authors, and he is waiting to help you this March and April at the library.
