Whether it is a thoughtful story for adults, a funny folk tale for children, or the inspiring history of her family?s experience in the incarceration camps during World War II, Anne Shimojima reminds us that to be human is to travel the most fascinating journey of all. Her repertoire includes folk tales from around the world and historical pieces that help us find our places in the world today. A professional storyteller since 1982, Anne performs in festivals, schools, libraries, museums, and conferences. Her thirty-five years as an elementary school library media specialist have given her a deep understanding of the universal truths we can all find in story.
