The Whole Story: Imagination, Feeling And Attitude In Stories With Storyteller Carol Birch

Saturday February 16, 2013: 10:00 am to 11:30 am -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Nationally-renowned storyteller Carol Birch presents a workshop for teens and adults before her performance at the 26th Annual Storytelling Festival at The Ark. This presentation, which helps the storyteller in all of us bring character and setting into sharper focus, reminds us of how to capture imagery to create a story with the vividness and conviction of daily living. This event is cosponsored by the Ann Arbor Storytellers' Guild.

In 1998 Carol Birch received the National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence Award. Thirty years of experience have earned her a respected place in the forefront of the revival of platform storytelling: teaching at Southern Connecticut State University; lecturing at forty-one universities across the nation, as well as professional and corporate organizations; and much more.

Media appearances include ABC's Nightline and CBS, This Morning, National Public Radio, Glamour Magazine and the New York Times. She's been a featured storyteller six times at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and her storytelling includes invitational events in Australia, Canada, Germany, Norway, and Singapore, as well as theater concerts for adults, festivals for families, and school residencies throughout the United States.

This event is for adults and teens (grade 6 and up).
