According to Denise McCormack, the series coordinator and creative producer, “The Family Series is a wonderful opportunity to introduce people of all ages to the art of storytelling and to a wide variety of storytellers with all kinds of stories and styles of telling. This year, we’re especially excited to outreach to our local community as well as to a whole new scope of newcomers by means of virtual presentations. We expect that each month will bring something new and improved as we work to adapt and hone this new world of technology in a way that preserves the integrity and grip of the storytelling experience. ”
