Everybody loves a nice story — storytelling is an ancient art form and community ritual that’s permeated every culture, told on papyrus, word of mouth or even through hieroglyphics. The grounds of shady, pristine Washington Park make an ideal setting for the first installation of the “Storytelling in the Park,” which unites amateur and professional storytellers alike to bring you a storytelling experience rejoicing that ancient art form that will entertain the entire family.
Joining the storytellers is librarian Arnice Smith from Cincinnati’s own College Hill Branch, who received the 2005 Librarian of the Year award from The New York Times. Smith will be taking a short break from being an awesome librarian and will host a special event just for the kids. Sunday, Sept. 9. Washington Park, 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. washingtonpark.org.
