Flock of Words - Transported - Crowland Library - Session 1

The Eloquent Fold had a wonderful morning in Crowland Library working with the public, creating the second Flock of Words for Transported Open Book project. 

It is a very welcoming library, buzzing with community activity and we had a lovely time sharing stories, some inspired by old maps. It has been fascinating to discover more about how people have come to live in the area and the journeys and places that connect us. 

We have plenty more book board birds to embellish and are looking for more stories, particularly from the Crowland Jackdaws.
