Please join Providence Community Library and Valerie Tutson for an afternoon of storytelling at the Knight Memorial Library. Valerie has been telling stories in schools, churches, libraries, festivals and conferences since 1991. She draws her stories from around the world with an emphasis on African traditions. Her repertoire includes stories and songs she learned in her travels to South Africa, her experiences in West Africa, stories from African American history. She not only delights listeners with her tale-telling, she also teaches workshops and classes to students of all ages, and hosts ‘Cultural Tapestry’, an award-winning show for Cox 3 celebrating the diverse cultures around us.
This event is sponsored by the League for the Advancement of New England Storytelling and the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.
2:30pm, Wednesday, Knight Memorial Library, 275 Elmwood Avenue, 401.467.2625
