CT Librarians Tell: A Storytelling Showcase at Best Video Thurs., Mar. 12, 4-6 PM

The Connecticut Library Consortium presents CT Librarians Tell: A Storytelling Showcase at Best Video FILM & Cultural Center on Thursday, Mar. 12, from 4-6 PM. The event is free and open to the public.

Hear favorite and original stories provided by a lineup of CT librarians trained by award-winning storyteller Jennifer Munro.

Jennifer Munro grew up in a small village in the heart of the industrial Midlands of England where she learned the rules of engagement that have resulted in a collection of original stories about rascals, rogues, and heroes. Her stories, funny and poignant, will have you cheering one moment and weeping the next. Her repertoire also includes original myths and adult fairy tales, which resonate with a deep and abiding truth that speaks to the here and now.

Jennifer has performed on national public radio, at libraries, schools, coffee houses, conferences, and major festivals across the nation, most notably the national festival in Jonesborough, TN, and the Timpanogos Festival in Utah.

Her CDs, Relatives and their Body Parts and Beginnings are both Storytelling World Winners as is her collection of short stories, Aunty Lily and other Delightfully Perverse Stories, published by Parkhurst Brothers in 2016. She is also the recipient of the 2017 Barbara Reed award for distinguished and outstanding service to the Connecticut Storytelling Center.

The Connecticut Library Consortium is a statewide membership collaborative serving all types of Connecticut libraries by helping them strengthen their ability to serve their users. CLC achieves its mission by initiating and facilitating cost-effective services, creating and supporting educational and professional development, and fostering innovation.
