Island Books is proud to present some of the best professoinal storytellers in the Pacific Northwest. Every first Saturday, September through June, they transform our space with folk tales and contemporary and orignal stories, all masterfully told.
In March Margaret Read MacDonald & Dino O'Dell will be joining us.
Margaret Read MacDonald
Margaret Read MacDonald is an internationally acclaimed storyteller, folklorist, and prolific author of children's books. She has published more than sixty-five books of stories and books about storytelling, which have been translated into many languages. Her workshops have made the art of storytelling accessible to countless teachers and librarians around the world, as she shares her passion for "tellable" tales. She performs year-round and we're always lucky when she has time to stop by Island Books- usually on her way to or from a faraway land!
Whether you are counting monsters, fixing spaceships or swimming in peanut butter, Dino's interactive songs and tall tales engage curiosity and inspire the imagination. Dino is a former teacher and an award-winning musician. Whether he’s singing about science and geography, or promoting early literacy, the content is presented through music and stories. Children learn best when they are engaged, and they are engaged best when the medium is interactive.
