The Student Storytelling Festival is for school age children who like to talk and tell tales. It will include prizes for those who register to tell a story. The story can be a true story about themselves or a family member. Or, the story can be a folktale, a fable, a legend, a myth, or a tall tale. Or, a suggested theme for a story could be “Trouble: Before I Knew Better.”
To register as a teller, parents or student may call Gail N. Herman 413-203-5247 or email email@example.com.
