Veteran's Day 2021

The Children’s Literature Centre is very excited to be holding a special Veterans Day event for the first time in the Centre’s history! We are holding this event in conjunction with American Legion Faraday Post #24. Our main event will take place on Veterans Day, November 11.2021, at City Place in Frostburg. The event is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. Illustrator, Matt Tavares, will be the main speaker at the Veterans Day event and will be presenting the book he illustrated, Twenty-One Steps, about the soldier who guards the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. 

In addition to the main event at City Place, Matt Tavares will be presenting Twenty-One Steps to students at Beall Elementary. The CLC has partnered with Beall and Frost Elementary and will be having a cover art drawing contest with fourth and fifth-grade students from both schools. The winners of the contest will have their art displayed on the cover of the program for our main event at City Place. All other students who submit art in the contest will have their art hung up in City Place during the main event as well. Matt will also meet with students and faculty from FSU in the afternoon prior to the main event. This collaboration was made possible by our extremely generous donors.
