Judy Willis to Lead Children at Storytelling Festival

posted Sep 23, 2012, 12:04 PM by Interfaith WS

                Judy Willis is among the outstanding storytellers who will be headlining “Many Traditions, One Community,” an interfaith storytelling festival Nov. 3.  The festival is sponsored by Interfaith Winston-Salem and will be held at Knollwood Baptist Church in Winston-Salem.

                Ms. Willis, who created the “I AM*YES Learning & Life Coaching Program,” will work with children in grades three, four and five.  She will use elements of that program to help children replace limiting statements and self-doubt with self-confidence and self-esteem.

                Her original stories inspire reading and writing readiness and improve children’s listening and communication skills.  Some of her stories have been broadcast on National Public Radio.

                Registration begins at 4 p.m. at Knollwood Baptist, which is located at 330 Knollwood Street.  Concurrent sessions for children, youth and adults begin at 4:15 and end at 5:30.  The meal at 5:30-6:30 will be provided by Temple Emanuel, the Annoor Islamic Center and the Hindu community.  There is no charge, but donations will be accepted to help cover the cost of the meal.

                The festival ends with a one-hour concert by Ed Kilbourne, a popular singer/storyteller from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m.  Additional information is available from Interfaith Winston-Salem or by calling 336-722-9112.
