Jenna Gibson Audio Slideshow Pitch

Your Name:  Jenna Gibson
Your story format for this assignment:

____ Text (2 photos and/or graphics)
_____ Video
__X___ Audio slideshow

Your pitch (in one short paragraph):

Downtown bookstore Indigo Bridge Books holds weekly bilingual storytime hours. There, volunteers read books in Spanish and English to children. The desire to hold bilingual storytime events was actually the reason the owners decided to open Indigo Bridge a few years ago, as a way to open communication and foster cross-cultural learning and understanding.

Explain why this story is best told using this format.

I think this is a pretty visual story with strong audio. Pictures can capture the kids’ reactions as the audience hears the volunteers reading in two different languages.

List the names and titles of the sources (both those you have talked with already and those you plan to talk to) and describe what role they will play in the story.

Marj McKinty, volunteer coordinator at Indigo Bridge, gave me some great background

Parents who attend the reading – Before or after the event, I would ask the parents why they bring their children to Indigo Bridge for storytime, what they hope to get out of it and what their kids think about the experience.
