Community event: Celebrating Our Earth: An Evening of Stories with Eva Abram and Billie Barnes
April 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
April is the Month for Seattle Storytellers Guild’s Annual Earth Day Storytelling Program. This year, we are featuring two fine storytellers – who will remind us that despite our differences, we all share our planet.
Eva Abram grew up collecting rainwater for household use; that experience taught her that water is essential for life and the same is true of stories, they nourish human beings, as rainwater nourishes the earth’s plants and animals. Stories are carried across the globe, connecting us with one another.
Billie L Barnes is a beader, weaver, drummer, singer, belly dancer and storyteller! She tells tales of traveling by oceangoing canoe across the Salish Sea and coastal Pacific, racing a dragon boat in China “till my arms fell off”… and of more journeys to New Zealand, Jamaica, Mexico, Egypt, Ireland – even Tennessee!
Third Friday Evenings at Haller Lake are perfect for story lovers – both tellers and listeners – everywhere! Featured tellers some months, story swaps some months, always an open mic, and a chance to mingle.
Free. Snacks are provided. Donations are welcome.
Coordinated by the Seattle Storytellers Guild.
