Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi presents: Fairy Gifts – Tricky Transactions and Risky Rewards


In Ireland, the visible world and the invisible world exist side by side. The “Good People,” often referred to as the fairies, coexist with humans and the interactions between the two groups is the subject of many wondrous and peculiar tales. Join Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi for an evening of not your typical “fairy stories.”


Storyteller Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi believes in the power of the spoken word to enlighten, educate and delight all who listen!  A versatile performer and educator, her stories of wit, wonder and wisdom captivate audiences of all ages whether she is standing in the classroom or on a concert stage. Through her school residency programs, she helps children to tell and write their own stories. Her writing workshop “From Memories to Memoir” is a favorite at local retirement communities. She is co-founder with Karen Pillsworth of Tall Tale/Short Story Productions

Lorraine frequently combines art and story in her workshops with children and adults. She believes that the powerful images found in stories resonate within the human heart and allow us to connect to our deepest longings. Creating a piece of art from these images sets the stage for the word to enter, stimulates the imagination and improves access to personal creativity.

Her book Wisdom in the Telling Finding Inspiration and Grace in Traditional Folktales and Myths Retold was the winner of the 2008 Storytelling World Resource Award for Special Storytelling Resources.

Hosted By: Ralph Chadis
