Mark your calendars now as the proclamation “urges all Kentuckians to participate in its observance by telling a story, listening to a story, and celebrating the power of storytelling.”

The Proclamation states: “ Storytelling is one of the traditional ways that Kentucky’s elders have taught younger generations about their ancestors, heritage and culture; and Storytelling can be used as an educational tool in any discipline for any age.”

KSA has many resources to assist you in planning a local school or community event, including an annual Storytelling Conference, a Teller Directory, Teller Wanted request form, and Storytelling Calendar which are available online at www.kystory.org.

Kentucky Storytelling Week Sept 8-14 , 2014, is the beginning of an annual event to encourage tellers and listeners of all ages.
