Hello Shari;

Well, you can go to Storytelling with Children and listen to a podcast with myself and Eric Wolf on the topic of the "Mechanisms of Humor." I also have the workshop booklet for sale, very cheap at my story store on my website. click on the story store button upper right of every page.

The podcast is a fun event and you will enjoy listening, I cover alot of information in that hour and I tell a tale or two.

hope that helps

Shari Lynn,

Hi, I am Karl Behling from Utah. Our school district does exactly what you described. Contact Shelly Ripplinger at She is our school librarian and one of the festival coordinators. Please use my name and tell her I sent you. We are right in the middle of our program, the schools have selected their 3 tellers and we are preparing for the city wide festival in February.

Best to you, Karl Behling, Storyteller

Hi Shari Lynn, wonderful to hear from you. NYC has a a city wide storytelling festival. Althogh I haven't coached and accompanied students to it, I have been involved on a school basis with storytelling programs that develop storytellers who then go. Right now I ma working with Early Stages a NYC based group that does storytelling curriculum in the school, teaching storystructure to grades k-5.

Hi Shari,
My books are not available in many libraries. If you asked the library, they might buy some. You can download the ebooks free from my website at I asked you to be a friend, because I ask everyone to be a friend.
