Wild About Story Invites you to a Storyteller’s Bookclub - Conversations with Storytelllers about books which inspire the Oral Traditions
Wild about Story has invited some long serving storytellers to have a think about the books that have inspired, challenged or nourished them on their journey as a storyteller. Hosted by Tim Ralphs, guest tellers will be invited to share their experiences of a chosen book and reflect on how it has watered the roots of their work in the oral tradition. Dominic will be discussing his choice of book, tbc.
Questions from the audience are welcome, emailed in advance to [email protected] Booking is essential, ticket holders will be emailed a Zoom link the day before the event. It may add to the experience for audience members to have read the book in advance but it is not essential. Copies of the book are available to order (inc. p&p) from Wild About Story (5% discount). Email for details.
