Celtic Fury, Fun and Frivolity!

You don't want to miss this opportunity to hear one of the most influential and talented storytellers. Marni will be winding her way from New York to Massachusetts for one, wonderful St. Patrick's Day show! On Saturday,  March 6, 2010 Marni will be our feature at the ArtWorks Story Cafe. Don't miss one word!

Mythical heroes, magical gods, and a notorious clan chieftain’s daughter inhabit the tales Marni Gillard will lure us to as we head toward St. Patrick’s Day. You don’t have to be Irish to bask in the glow of this Irish smiler or warm yourself at the fire she stokes in your imagination.

Marni’s been telling tales, teaching tellers, and writing about the process of artistry for three decades now. She is the author of Storyteller, Storyteacher, co-edited Give a Listen: Stories of Storytelling in School her recording, Without a Splash: Diving into Childhood Memories, includes great models for life tale-telling. Marni works as a teaching artist and coach throughout the Northeast and co-founded Children at the Well (interfaith youth) Storytelling Project.
