|UNC Library to host storytelling and sing-along|
|Monday, November 24, 2008|
Let spell-binding storytellers and musicians kindle your spirit with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library’s 16th annual Winter Stories program on Dec. 11.
The program in Wilson Library, “Tales to Warm Your Heart,” will begin with refreshments in the lobby at 5 p.m. and continue with seasonal tales and music from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room.
Storytellers will be Brian Sturm, associate professor at the UNC School of Information and Library Science, and school master’s degree candidates Siobhan Loendorf, Meredith Sutphin and Katherine Kemp.
“Tales to Warm Your Heart” will include Ukrainian, German and Siberian folktales. Also included will be a legend from the Lenape people. The Lenape, who lived in what is now the metropolitan New York area, were among the first Native Americans to come in contact with Europeans, in the 17th century.
Instrumental music will be provided by guitarist Kate Barnhart, an assistant at the School of Information and Library Science library; flutist and Davis Library music cataloger Laurie Neuerburg; guitarist and library federal documents coordinator Carolyn Shomaker; and violinist and music graduate student Christina Davison. There also will be a sing-along.
