Storytelling Audio 2015

The 2015 storyteling festival was held on Saturday, April 4 from 7-10 pm in room 126 of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science. Coordinated this year by Associate Professor and Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Kate McDowell and GSLIS alum, CAS student, and Uni High School Librarian Amy Atkinson, the Festival featured both new performers and returning seasoned storytellers sharing age-old folklore, personal stories, and everything in between, followed by a decidedly impressive open mic that lasted long into the evening. Thanks to everyone who made the event a success!

Audio files of past Center for Children's Books storytelling festivals are available. We hope you enjoy listening. The files are in MP3 format with the exception of the 2003 recordings which are RAM and will require Real Player.
