Magic of the Sea, with Arianna Ross

Stories and Mini-workshop
Tuesday, March 1, 7:00- 8:45 pm

Arianna Ross is a storyteller/ performer who grounds her storytelling in traditional tales intertwined with her international experience living and story-gathering in countries as diverse as Egypt, Ireland , Indonesia, and Spain. She will be returning to the Library on Tuesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. for a storytelling session followed by a mini-workshop in storytelling for those who wish to hone some of their own storytelling skills. The evening had previously been scheduled for January 24, but a combination of snow and no water in the Library suggested a later date would be more felicitous.

The Magic of the Sea is a poetic capturing of the heart with the bright oranges, reds, and greens of the coral, fish, and folk traditions of Indonesia. This is a unique story based on Rossís experiences living with Indonesian fishermen and is a particularly poignant choice in the wake of the recent tsunami devastation in that region.
