About this Event
Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild continues its Family Storytelling Series with storyteller Mary Ann Paterniti on Sunday, May 16. This virtual and pre-recorded program will be available for all-day viewing. Running Time is approximately 45 minutes. Registration is required. This is a PWYW event. Suggested minimum donation: $5/family.
According to Denise McCormack, the series coordinator and creative producer, “The Family Series is a wonderful opportunity to introduce people of all ages to the art of storytelling and to a wide variety of storytellers with all kinds of stories and styles of telling. This year, we’re especially excited to outreach to our local community as well as to a whole new scope of newcomers by means of virtual presentations. We expect that each month will bring something new and improved as we work to adapt and hone this new world of technology in a way that preserves the integrity and grip of the storytelling experience. ”
About the Teller
Join MaryAnn for favorite tales.
MaryAnn finds and shares unusual stories that surprise even folks who think they’ve heard it all! With an animated style of storytelling, MaryAnn delights even the most discriminating audiences, captivating them and keeping them entertained from beginning to end.
Mary Ann’s vast repertoire includes over a hundred age-appropriate stories for children, teens, and adults, and she has performed in schools, libraries, senior centers, hospitals, private parties, bonfires, festivals, colleges, for the women of the United Nations in NYC, and even in the swamps of the Meadowlands!
In addition to the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild, Mary Ann is a member of The Princeton Storytelling Circle and The Northeast Storytellers.
As an Early Childhood Educator for over 40 years, MaryAnn is adept at bringing music, movement, humor, and stories to make everyday fun! In fact, MaryAnn plays the African hand drum, the uke, and the harmonica and has been trained in the Music Together program for families.
