Northwestern students to help with Story Walk Event set for Oct. 7 in downtown Alva

October 3, 2016 

Two Northwestern Oklahoma State University academic programs are coming together to serve as guides and readers for the first Story Walk event to be held on Friday, Oct. 7, at 5:15 p.m., in Alva’s downtown Arts and Shopping District.

English education majors, as well as students in a children's literature class within the elementary education program, will be working with the young readers in Alva and the area.

This event will be held in conjunction with the Graceful Arts Gallery and Studios’ First Friday Art Walk. The story walk will start at the Washington School Gazebo, located on 7th Street across from the Public Library.

The next stop will be the Pocket Park at the Alva Public Library, followed by the Courthouse Stage as the third stop, then the fourth stop will be at the “Lemon Drops” Bronze at the corner of 4th and Barnes streets.

The final stop will be in the Graceful Arts Center room for Oktoberfest treats.

Children from pre-school, kindergarten, first grade and their parents are encouraged to attend this first-time event. The Story Walk will be about the book “Mr. Duck Means Business” by Oklahoma author Tammi Sauer.

The Northwestern students will be under the leadership of Dr. Kathy Earnest, assistant professor of English, and Dr. Jen Oswald, assistant professor of education.
