Would be fable-writers will want to hop or plod to a participating library to learn how to craft tales with a moral.

The Thurber House is collaborating with the Columbus Metropolitan Library and the Westerville Public Library to offer Fable Writing Workshops for students in the 4th through 6th grades. Participants will discuss Aesop's famous tales like "The Tortoise and the Hare" and discover some written by James Thurber.
