A Developing Story: "Here Comes the Storybook Man!"

"Greetings, everyone!
This is performing arts storyteller, J'miah Nabawi. Many of you in Savannah (GA), Boston (MA), Philly (PA) and Miami (FL) have known my work over the years and how much I TRULY ENJOY, LOVE, performing for children and family audiences and seeing the excitement on their faces.

What's up for me this summer? With Team Books for Growing Minds Storybooks Alive! it will be ALL ABOUT BOOKS--READING BOOKS ALOUD, PERFORMING BOOKS FROM THEIR PRINTED PAGES, PRESENTING STORYBOOKS IMPROV WORKSHOPS, AND MORE!

Join us in this mission to present Books for Growing Minds Storybooks Alive! to Savannah and its surrounding communities where children and their families and the general public will be able to take part in this lively summertime, vacation reading-like, event.
Grass-roots community-based organizations and city and state-run agencies that provide social services to children and families; manage women shelters; our military veterans and their families; and provide facilities and services for the homeless and unhoused, underserved rural, migrant, and immigrant communities, to get involved as “Location Sites” for this program. There will be no artist performance fees, honorariums, or materials cost for you for this program. We encourage you to apply to be a “presentation location site” for your constituency at no cost.

Team Books for Growing Minds Storybooks Alive! is passionate about family literacy and making books and reading fun and accessible to all.

Yes! This summer 2024, for us, it's all about BOOKS! We need your support to make this happen as we intend. Your donations will help us bulk-purchase new books for the giving, obtain materials, supplies, and equipment, and secure liability insurance for our Books for Growing Minds Storybooks Alive! on-site presentations and culminating public event.

UPDATE! May 10, 2024, Mothers' Day Weekend. Thanks to the friends and family iPHONE users using Apple Pay, we received $1500 in donations. YES! And I am currently waiting on the list of titles/ books, including graphic novels for a several teens, being requested by mothers for their reading area and library at two locations. Therefore our goal is now at $6,000.00 which will provide books for 1000 participants including school book fairs.

Please consider donating and sharing this campaign. Your support can make a big difference in promoting our mission for family literacy and the joy of reading, a program that brings an acclaimed professional storyteller and solid support from a support team of professional creatives and literacy advocates.

BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOK! MORE STORIES, PLEASE!
