Storytelling isn’t limited to “once upon a time.”
Libraries can use the power of storytelling to communicate more effectively. Stories are better heard, understood, and remembered which is increasingly important in this distracted digital age. Join us for a half-day workshop to learn the influence of storytelling and leave inspired and energized with exciting ideas and practical skills.
The workshop will begin with short participatory exercises led by Mr. Michael Kattner to jumpstart participants into actively exploring storytelling skills. This will be followed by Mr. Harley Newman and Dr. Lora Taub-Pervizpour who will each have a combination of lecture, videos, and hands-on exercises. A question-and-answer session with both speakers will conclude the program. If you have a tablet computer, please bring it with you.
A light lunch will be provided.
Registration deadline is Friday, November 8th.
