St. John's Episcopal and First Congregational churches have collaborated on a StoryWalk featuring "The Day You Begin" by Jacqueline Woodson, illustrated by Rafael Lopez.
The book's pages are posted at intervals, beginning in front of St. John's at 35 Park St. and ending in front of the First Congregational Church office on Chapin Hall Drive. A map is included.
The project is suitable for all ages. Participants are asked to give space to other visitors, use a mask, and avoid touching the signs.
The local initiative was sparked by St. John's member Sarah Olsen in collaboration with education directors Sloane Torres of St. John's and Anne O'Connor of First Church. The solid wood panels were built by John Ladd of St. John's.
The StoryWalk will stay posted through Oct. 31. The panels will be used for future book installations.
