Trevor Little will share the story of An Eagle and a Sea Serpent during the annual Family Literacy Day celebration at Echo Centre on Saturday, Jan. 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In previous years, organizer Katrina Connell said, the event always celebrated a book. This year Little will be verbally sharing a story that came to him in a dream.

Once the story is finished, participants may share in a free lunch of bannock and Bounty of the Sea soup prepared by renowned chef Dolly Watts McRae. Please pre-register at 250-723-2181.
