“Playing with Story” workshop with Margaret Read MacDonald

Learn several lively audience-participation folktales and leave ready-to-tell. Plan a story time for the week following the workshop so you can put your new tales to use! The workshop will also include a brief discussion of the art of the folktale picture book and the path a folktale takes from traditional teller to published book. Bibliographies for more telling resources will be provided.

Dr. Margaret Read MacDonald is an internationally renowned and respected storyteller, folklorist, children’s librarian, and author of numerous essential story-telling books. Her workshops empower the beginning teller, quickly turning novices into eager tellers. For more information, visit: www.margaretreadmacdonald.com
