Stephen Swinburne, author and photographer of Whose Shoes? A Shoe for Every Job, will be visiting libraries, museums and other early learning sites across the state. Fifty-five trunks developed by museum educators also will be available for borrowing through public libraries. Each trunk is filled with fun book-related activities, games and manipulatives for young children. In addition each trunk includes a guide that encourages use of the trunk contents in activities that are aligned with the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards.

The following is a listing of Stephen Swinburne's visits around the state. This list is subject to change. Two contacts are listed for most locations: a media contact that should be contacted only by a member of the media wishing to cover an event; and a public number that the public can call for information.

Please Note: Not all events are open to the public and some require an admission fee.
