Storytelling Festival: Linda Kennedy & Joan McCammon

Monday, November 27, 2017

The Storytelling Festival concludes with a performance by Linda Kennedy & Joan McCammon: the "Do-Tell Duo!"

Don't miss the conclusion of the 2017 Menlo Park Library Storytelling Festival!  This week's featured performers are Linda Kennedy and Joan McCammon, also known as the "Do-Tell Duo."

Their lively performance include stories, music, audience participation, and lots of laughter!

About Linda Kennedy
Linda Kennedy has been telling stories for 30 years.  Her repertoire includes folk tales, fairy tells, and personal stories, all aimed to take the imaginations of audience members to places and times of wonder, humor, peace, and justice. Linda is a volunteer storyteller for the Women’s Empowerment Program in Sacramento, where she uses stories to open up conversations with previously-homeless women as they make their way to a successful life.

About Joan McCammon
Joan McCammon began telling stories Chautauqua style for the American Association of University Women's Women in History School Program in the Los Angeles area, and went on to use the medium as an outdoor field trip educator, and then later as a school librarian. After moving to Nevada County and enrolling her daughter into Linda’s 4th grade classroom, she and Linda discovered their shared love for storytelling and teamed up as the Do-Tell Duo.

About Storytelling
  • Storytelling is telling stories--without using a book
  • It's an ancient art form that predates libraries, and books, and writing
  • Traditional-style storytelling creates unique images in the mind of each listener
According to the National Storytelling Network, "storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener’s imagination. In storytelling, the listener imagines the story."

This free program is made possible thanks to funding from the Menlo Park Friends of the Library.
