The Power of Love with Maria LoBiondo

Come hear a program of Italian stories with Maria LoBiondo on the theme "The Power of Love." 

Italian folk and fairy tales have roots in ancient myths, the earthy wisdom of peasant experience, and literary works such as Giambattista Basile’s Pentamerone. LoBiondo will tell stories in which love conquers all—for hard-working families, royal heroes, and clever heroines.

NJ Storytelling Guild: STORYTELLING ON THE MOMENT, Workshop with Regina Ress


One of the great gifts of storytelling is its flexible immediacy as well as its ability
to address difficult topics indirectly through metaphor. Sometimes the story
unfolding in the wider world impacts the story needing to be told at the moment. 
As storytellers, our ability to respond to what is happening, both in the world and
in the listeners who have gathered to hear story, presents us with the opportunity
to ease minds and hearts, strengthen individuals and create community.

NJ Storytelling Guild: TELLING STORIES IN THE LANGUAGES OF VERY YOUNG CHILDREN, Workshop with Judy Engles Wiener

Preschool children process information and ideas through their senses, their
body movements, and their play, every bit as much as they do through the
spoken word. In this exploration of Interactive Storytelling for the very, very
young, we will examine ways of incorporating movement, sounds, play, props, 
and children’s own creative input into stories designed to engage and include an
audience that is not quite ready to “Sit still and be quiet!”
