Storytelling Celebration (Eastwood)


Storytelling Celebration with 2nd Story and the Lansing Storytellers

Join us for an evening of live storytelling featuring Megan Stielstra, the Literary Director for 2nd Story in Chicago, as well as representatives of the Lansing Storytellers, including Ena Baker, Jean Bolley and Mari Martin. 2nd Story is a Chicago-based collective of story-makers and story-lovers working to build community through storytelling. Megan Stielstra is one of the editors of Briefly Knocked Unconscious by a Low-Flying Duck: Stories from 2nd Story, an anthology that brings the vibrant oral tradition to the page, culled from ten years of archived performances and adapted from the stage to the page.

The Lansing Storytellers was started in the spring of 1988 as a place for local storytellers to practice their stories and learn from each other. Over the years they have expanded their mission to include keeping the oral art alive and introducing (or re-introducing) the pleasure of listening to a story to as many people of all ages as possible.
