It's Not What's Said; It's How its Told


This year's Toronto Festival of Storytelling, 28 years in the making, is an all-day village of stories for families by great international, Canadian and local tellers. The Remarkable Story Jam celebrates some of Toronto's best school-age storytellers. The Village brings together Mats Rehnman (Sweden), La'Ron Williams (United States), Philip Thomas and Eirwen Malin (England), Dale Jarvis (Newfoundland), Judith Poirier (Quebec), Melanie Ray (Vancouver), and some of Ontario's best-known yarnspinners for a spirited afternoon of stories.

Programs include: Storytelling sets for families and for adults, Off the Shelf: Toronto Libraries' choicest storytellers, S'More Stories (a celebration of campfire stories), and more.

Where's the Munsch though?

Runs till April 9. For more info, visit the Web site or call 416-656-2445.
