Logo for Story Circle Storytelling combines the intensity of a solo performance with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation. "Storytelling at its best is mutual creation. Through the interaction between teller and listener, storytelling speaks to the inner child to nurture the human spirit." - Ellin Greene, author of Storytelling: Art & Technique.

An elementary school librarian (now retired) for 35 years, Grace began storytelling in school to develop good listening skills and to familiarize children with the oral tradition. She joined the Story Circle of the Capital District several years ago, and, since her retirement, has done storytelling in elementary schools.

Audiences: PreK, K - 6.

Programs: Folk tales, tall tales, traditional tales and ethnic tales (Italian, Polish, Irish, etc.) Grace has adapted tall tales of Joe Hayes, southwestern storyteller. Children especially enjoyed "My Pet Rattlesnake" and his coyote stories and other Spanish-American stories. She also performs "Wicked John and the Devil" as collected by Richard Chase, Seamus McManus’ "Wee Red Men," and other "oldies."
