National Share-a-Story Month

NSSM National Share-A-Story Month (NSSM) is an annual celebration of the power of storytelling and story sharing, providing a fantastic opportunity to fulfil the core aim of the FCBG of bringing children and stories together. Across the country Federation book groups and individuals run a whole host of events. Each year we are inspired by a specific theme and work with different organisations to provide people with resources and opportunities.

National Share a Story Month 2021 has the theme of Myths, Magic and Mayhem.


National Share a Story Month 2021

This all-encompassing theme will allow groups and schools to celebrate legendary and mythical stories, stories steeped in magic as well as adventures full of mayhem.  Resources will be available to groups very shortly and downloadable links will be made available as well.

Competitions will be launched and there are some wonderful prizes available to winners as well as Twitter giveaways to look forward to.

We are grateful to the many publishers for their generous support in 2021.  It has been a continually hard time for publishers and we appreciate all they have done to support NSSM.
