Author’s Night Features Storytellers

The Friends of the Greenville Public Library's Author’s Night on Friday February 27th will feature the delightful Jonatha & Harold Wright, professional storytellers who specialize in Ohio, Appalachian and Japanese stories. In addition to folk tales, fairy tales, historical tales, myths and legends they have numerous personal stories.

They carry their audience through the full range of emotions with sensitivity and taste, always leaving it with warm and comfortable feelings. Sometimes poetry is added for variety or emphasis. The Wrights have taught storytelling in many area colleges. They do workshops all over the U.S. and in Kyoto Japan on storytelling techniques and skills.

Professionally they belong to the state storytelling groups of Ohio, Kentucky and Florida, the National Storytelling Network, and the Miami Valley Storytellers. Harold has been a professor of Japanese at Antioch College and Ohio State University, and is an award-winning translator of Japanese poetry.

Doors open at 6:00 and the program is at 7:00 at Montage in downtown Greenville with music by RJ Price and Bill Westfall. For more info see As Harold & Jonatha say “storytelling is sound literature!”
