StoryCrafters present ‘Nurturing a Family Storytelling Tradition’

July 25, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

Nurturing a Family Storytelling Tradition: A Multi-Generational ‘Playshop’ in Story Games, Storytelling, and Building a Love for Literacy.

Storytelling as an activity in the home has many purposes: It helps build relationships; it establishes and enhances playful communication; it develops language in children; it creates interactive alternatives to a preponderance of visual media and stimulation in the modern world. There are so many ways to play with stories.  Learn to craft your family’s stories at this fun workshop. For families with children ages 4 & up.

Register online HERE.

Jeri Burns and Barry Marshall have been working together as The Storycrafters since 1991. They are the 2018 recipients of the National Storytelling Network’s “Circle of Excellence” Award. Their natural, energetic style has been featured in major festivals, schools and libraries in the US and abroad.
