Stories stick with us long after we’ve forgotten all the facts and figures we’ve memorized. They teach us. They connect us. They help us create new worlds. Stories have the power to change our lives. When characters come alive to us through stories, we learn empathy, we learn from another’s experience, we gain friends. Stories give us the power to imagine a new world.
Come celebrate stories, written and spoken, at the Story Arts Festival – Homer on September 27th and 28th, 2019. With performances by story tellers, puppeteers, talks by writers of everything from memoir to fiction, teen books to picture books, and workshops on writing, storytelling, and illustrating, we’ll embrace the power of stories to change our world.
