National Share-A-Story Month (NSSM) is an annual celebration of the power of storytelling and story sharing, providing a fantastic opportunity to fulfil the core aim of the FCBG of bringing children and stories together.
Across the country Federation book groups and individuals run a whole host of events. Each year we hold a specific theme (usually related to our annual conference where we launch the event) and work with different organisations to provide people with resources and opportunities.
In previous years we have worked with publishers supplying funding and themed packs as well as a large number of author visits, enthusing and encouraging people to join in. In 2012 National Share-A-Story Month was sponsored by Templar who provided every book group with a free Story World pack. Large numbers of events took place in schools and communities, using the story world packs to inspire young people to share stories with each other.
