Have you always wanted to be able to tell a good story? Do you just love to hear a good story? Are you fascinated by the power of stories to aid memory and communicate a point? If any of these are true, give yourself a treat and come to this presentation by Prof. Scheub, one of the world’s leading scholars in African oral traditions and folklore. He’s walked over 6000 miles to collect stories and learn the craft of storytelling, and you only have to walk a few blocks to benefit from his expertise!
