10th annual Stories by the Millsteam Festival Sept. 18
To celebrate Rowan Public Library’s 10th annual Stories by the Millstream Festival, storyteller and performer Jim Weiss will be at the library for a family storytelling program sponsored by the Friends of the Library on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. at the library’s Stanback Auditorium.
Literature comes alive with Weiss, who has been telling stories for more than 25 years, performing throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East.
In 1989 he formed a production company, Greathall Productions, with his wife, and has since produced more than 42 storytelling recordings that include “American Tall Tales,” “Heroes in Mythology,” “The Prince and the Pauper” and “Treasure Island.”
Weiss and Greathall Productions have received more than 80 major national awards including the Parents’ Guide to Children Media Award, The American Library Association Notable Award, and the Storytelling World Award.
On Friday, Sept. 18, Weiss will be the featured teller, joining 24 other storytellers, as part of the annual Stories by the Millstream Festival held at Sloan Park for Rowan-Schools’ second-graders. The Stories by the Millstream Festival is also sponsored by the Friends of Rowan Public Library.
