Gather around for TALES OF TAILS FROM AROUND THE WORLD! Live and in-person in the Couture Room at LPL! Want to watch from home? You still can! This event will be simultaneously livestreamed on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/LewistonLibrary. Join LPL with Blackstone Storytelling for an evening of folktales from around the globe. Be captivated by Phyllis Blackstone as she performs folktales and leads us in discussion of their histories and universal truths. Dr. Phyllis Blackstone, storyteller extraordinaire and retired professor of educations, currently resides in Brunswick, ME. She used storytelling as her preferred teaching tool with first graders to graduate students. In her retirement she tells a variety of stories to children, adults, senior citizens and special audiences. Folktales in her repertoire are stories of wisdom and truth. Her personal stories, sometimes humorous but always poignant, include her OCCASIONAL STORIES (Upon the Occasion of…), stories from SEE THE USA…IN A ROADTREK, and MEET MY FAMILY, tales of observing life as a baby sister in a large farming family from Caribou, ME. She tells sacred stories at faith-based gatherings and churches that are from the heart and good for the soul. More information is available at her website, blackstonestoryteller.com. She can be contacted at email@example.com. For more information, please call or email the LPL Reference Desk at 207-513-3135 or LPLreference@lewistonmaine.gov.
