Sloane has partnered with the Jackson County Homeschool Group, the Pines Library System and the Crawford Long Museum for many years and many events.

"I have always been an outside-the-box kind of person. I have always loved literature, even when I was young and battled with dyslexia. I have always loved costumes. And movies. And cool little pieces of trivia. I wish the historical 'American Girl' dolls and books were around when I was little; maybe then I would have paid more attention in History class. It's strange how much I love history now because I absolutely hated it in school. A bunch of dry facts in a textbook didn't mean anything to me. I have to have a personal connection in order to learn, to care about this mass of information being thrown at me. I need to know 'the story' behind the information. I created Literature to Life in order to teach the way I wish I could have been taught. It has grown larger than my original concept and I couldn't be happier!"
