LYN FORD, STORYTELLER - TELLER OF HOME-FRIED TALES
This is "National Love Makes the World Go 'Round, but Laughter Keeps Us from Getting Dizzy Week"!  Share the Love, and the Silly!!!
----------------
Share the love of family and ancestors, and the blessings passed on through the sacrifices of those who made history before there was an African American History Month.  Every day we stand upon their shoulders.  Every day we make history.  Ase!

Travelin' to Tell!

Coming in February:  

  • Many African American History Month storytelling programs for Columbus Metropolitan Library branches and their sister libraries.  Check their events pages at www.columbuslibrary.org (I've also traveled the snowy highway to Mansfield, Ohio's Mansfield/Richland County Public Library one evening--thank you to the brave souls who came and listened to a short performance!)
  • Trips to South Mountain Community College in Arizona for the annual "Return to the African Village" event presented by the Storytelling Institute (http://www.southmountaincc.edu/calendar/#/?i=1) and to Weber State University in Utah for their annual storytelling festival (http://community.weber.edu/storytelling/).  The line-ups are fantastic, folks, and I'm so happy to be a part of both events!
  • The Stroede Center for the Arts in Defiance, Ohio, has included me on its February Cultural Events Calendar at www.defiancearts.org/upcomingevents.html on February 28, with a 4 PM workshop and 7 PM performance.  Come and play with stories!
