Stone honored for Storytellers program

The Iowa Reading Association chose the Rev. Paul Stone to receive the Celebrate Literacy Award. Stone is pastor of Church of the Damascus Road prison congregation, Fort Dodge and Rockwell City correctional facilities. He is being honored for the church’s Storytellers program, where inmates record themselves reading a book, then send the book and DVD to their children.

Stone will be honored on June 26 at a banquet in Ames.
