Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

You Can't Beat Fun for a Good Time

If you are looking for a great way to add zip to your storytimes and other programs, learning to tell a few stories is a number one way to do so.  If you are looking for an entertaining and super-fun way to spend an evening or two, listening to fabulous storytellers is hard to beat...and, as a good friend of mine used to say, "You can't beat fun for a good time."

So, we are extremely lucky that Rob Reid and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has pulled together a terrific line-up of performers to do storytelling concerts and workshops for their Storytelling Festival, September 13 and 14.  The inimitable Marge Loch-Wouters will be there (you've seen her do a professional workshop--now watch her really cut loose at a storytelling event!).  Kevin McMullin, Tracy Chipman, and Sadarri &  Company will also be there, telling stories and leading workshops.

There is something for everyone at this festival--adults, teens, and younger kids, too, so bring your family.  And the price is affordable, even on a librarian salary.   I am so excited!  I hope to see some of you there.  For the details:  http://www.uwec.edu/COEHS/alumni/StorytellingFestival.htm
