*PLEASE NOTE: Due to the coronavirus situation and recommendations from local health officials, the CDC, and also the University, our live Festival events originally scheduled for April 23 – May 2, 2020 are being adapted to a VIRTUAL format.

Join us at the first Virtual St. Louis Storytelling Festival, happening online March 24 - May 1, 2020. We have talented professional storytellers lined up to give engaging, fun, and educational performances online. Weekly sessions include the following programs: “School’s Out StoryTime” for K-6 audiences; “Way Back Wednesdays” historical storytelling for older kids and adults; “Later Tales” for Adult audiences, and a “Digital Decameron” every Friday evening for communal sharing of stories in the age of social-distancing.

See the full schedule of online events. Join us via a Zoom link, or watch live from our Facebook page.
