Did you know there are professional storytellers? I am going to a storytelling festival in Mariposa on Saturday. Tim Lowry will be there among others.
I have an extended family member who is a professional storyteller; maybe not the type you're talking about, though. She used to be a professional modern dancer & had her own dance company, & told stories through dance. When she got older, she went
back to college & got a masters in library science. She does storytelling gigs, many but not all of them for children, in libraries and other places. She has also written several books for children & young adults - folk tales or stories about
interesting people, so she's basically told stories, one way or another, all of her professional life.
Yes, I knew of professional storytellers, they're called, pastors, priests, etc.
Insert Obama reference here
Have a great time.
No I didn't...sounds cool though.
