Decatur Rotary Club Meeting Information: Krista Gilliam, Manager, Little Shop of Stories (OTSP project)
Date: 8/3/2018 at 12:15 PM
Krista Gilliam has worked at Little Shop of Stories for over a decade, filling various roles throughout the years from story-time lady to store manager. Krista’s love of big ideas and getting the community together has been the driving force behind annual events like the Decatur Christmas Tree Lighting and On The Same Page Community Reading Program. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Decatur, and she enjoys baking, running, and (of course) reading.
On The Same Page is a city-wide reading initiative started in 2011. Our goal is to foster a community of readers by bringing families together around the same book. Each year we select a children’s book for local children and their families or classrooms to read. We create a customized program and promote community reading around the city, working with schools and libraries, coordinating book groups, leading discussions, participating in community service, and hosting other book-related events. The program culminates with a grand finale visit from the author in November.
