6:30 p.m., Eureka Library, World Storyteller Diane Ferlatte

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

International performer Diane Ferlatte is visiting Humboldt County! At the library Diane will share a blend of traditional songs and stories in her 'Knick Knack Paddy Whack' program, which is a blend of traditional songs and stories for young children, and designed to support literacy development, imagination, and playfulness in children up to age 5. Diane's storytelling has captivated audiences across six continents, winning many awards. She draws from a deep well of folktales, myths, legends, & fables to inform, entertain, & inspire all. While many of her stories & songs have African and African American roots, she loves to tell any story that holds truths touching upon our common humanity, our history & our culture. Diane believes that telling and listening to each other’s stories not only enables us to learn about each other, but also to understand each other better.

Image, Diane's smooth brown face has a gentle, humorous smile as she gestures in story telling.
Knick Knack Paddywhack,
give your child a song...
and an unforgettable memory of great storytelling!
