Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

I love being a storyteller, and am always pleased when I have opportunities to share personal stories, world folktales and western history narratives. As a touring performer and workshop presenter, my work has taken me all around the country. I provide workshops and entertain audiences of all ages at schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events. Most recently, I’ve been telling stories to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues.  


I’ve been busy helping that storyteller-person-lady, Glenda Bonin, get things ready for the Storytelling Tent at Tucson Festival of Books. The event starts tomorrow, and during the two days celebrating stories, books and authors (Saturday & Sunday – March 10 & 11) fourteen storytellers will be telling stories (no not all at the same time). It’s going to be a lot of fun, so if you can come to the University of Arizona Mall on either one of the days, you will be glad you did. Stop by and say hello to my favorite storyteller-person-lady-Glenda Bonin!
Your friend, Squirrely Shirley
