Why

We are looking forward to surprising, delighting and inspiring all those who participate and witness our StoryMobs.

In less than a year, the idea of two women wanting to tell stories, create wonderful costumes and encourage reading and imagination has quickly grown into a new love affair with books. StoryMobs has been gathering interest from libraries, bookstores, publishers, writers, families and book-lovers from coast to coast. StoryMobs is produced by Gretel Meyer Odell and Roxanne Deans. Both women see this initiative as a way of inspiring a sense of community and nurturing literacy and imagination.

More importantly, it’s always a ton of FUN!

And we’re excited to reawaken the inner Pirate, Princess, and Wild Thing in a few grown ups while we’re at it.
