Could you please forward this information along when you get a chance?

*Call for Entries: Animal Tales *

Are you an animal lover? Got a great story to share about your pet or any
animal, the outdoors or wildlife? As part of The Big Read celebration of
Jack London's *The Call of the Wild*, Dearborn Public Library is sending
out a call for short stories, poems or essays about animals, people's pets,
the outdoors or wildlife.

Email your original story, poem or essay of 1-4 pages to
hfischer at ci.dearborn.mi.us. It can be a little shorter or longer if that's
what it takes to tell the tale! The stories can be real or fictional. This
program is open to anyone (all ages). *The entry deadline has been extended
to March 1, 2014.* We hope to compile selected stories and publish them in
book format as "Call of the Wild Dearborn: Animal Tales." Copies will be
available for checkout at Dearborn Public Library or for purchase via
dearbornlibrary.org. Proceeds will benefit Dearborn Public Library. Read
the submission guidelines at http://bigreaddearborn.org/animal-tales/. A
flyer is available there too (attached).

Information is also on our library website at
http://dearbornlibrary.org/and on our Facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/dearbornpubliclibrary. A big thank you to our Big
Read partners and sponsors: http://bigreaddearborn.org/partners.

 Look forward to reading your stories!

Thank you,
