Local children have the opportunity for some "armchair travel" through a program at St. Lawrence University's Brewer Bookstore and students from a variety of nations.

In April, the Bookstore's Sunday afternoon story hour has an international theme, with international students sharing stories, history and culture from their home countries. Carolina De la Rosa Bustamante '10 from Colombia, Leila Mahmoud '11 from Kenya, Iva Senicnjak '11 from Croatia and Khadeejah Hamid '11 from Maldives are the volunteer story-tellers for the events, which are well attended by children in the Canton area.

Bookstore Principal Clerk Paul Haggett says that following great response to a Chinese New Year-themed event in February, he wanted to do additional events incorporating international themes. Deborah Harrison, coordinator of international student services, helped to recruit international student volunteers, all of whom have enjoyed sharing information about their home communities with young listeners. The events include maps, with information about where the story-teller is from in relation to Canton, and craft activities, as well as stories and picture-sharing.
