“Children played at those stories; they dreamed about them. They took them to heart and acted as if to live inside them.” 
Gregory Maquire, A Lion Among Men

 

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 20th Annual Weber State University Storytelling Festival!  We were thrilled by performances from some of our favorite storytellers from past years—Donald Davis, Angela Lloyd, and Bill Harley—as well as nationally acclaimed children's author and bilingual storyteller, Carmen Deedy.  Beloved regional storytellers and dozens of youth storytellers from local school districts also participated to delight, entertain, and edify.  These were three absolutely magical days of storytelling events for all ages. In addition to our traditional three-day festival, we continue to offer a variety of workshops and events (please explore the drop-down menu). Check out our new festival video (below). 

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, all Storytelling Festival events are FREE of CHARGE except the Storytelling Festival Banquet on Tuesday evening. For banquet tickets, please contact Jackie Shafer (jackieshafer@weber.edu) at 801-626-7515.
