the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts
3rd Annual Boston Storytelling Festival at the Boston Public Library with massmouth, inc.
It’s that magical time of year; it’s dark, we’ve survived our first blizzard, it has been cold and will continue to be cold - maybe forever. For those of us who aren’t spending February Vacation in the Bahamas, there’s a small light a bit closer to home. In honor of the oldest human tradition the Boston Public Library will be hosting the third annual Boston Storytelling Festival on Saturday, Feb 15th, 2014. We’re inviting people (big and small) to gather around the proverbial fire for a variety of storytelling experiences -- including workshops, folk and fairy tales and a “The Long and Short of it” themed slam.
9:30am - 12:30pm Traditional storytellers will include:
Tim Seston, Carolyn Stearns, Tony Toledo, Alicia Quintano, Jackson Gillman, Norah Dooley, Robin Bady, Doria Hughes, Maggie Bush, Kevin Kulp and Bruce Marcus.
2pm - 4:30pm Storytellers “for the 21st century” include: .
HR Britton, Wes Hazard, Theresa Okokon, Jon Klein, Ken Green, Elizabeth Freeman, Rebecca Sacks, Jim Stahl and more.
