Charles House - Fall2013

Story Squad storytellers shared stories from around the world with seniors at Charles House on Friday, November 15th, 2013.  From Native American “pourquoi” (why things are as they are) tales of the stars and moon, to a Gullah tale about turtle’s cracked shell, to India for a story about the origin of shoes, to Japan for a tale of a stone cutter’s discovery of his true power, and on to Russia for a tale of a snow child who blesses a childless couple, the stories shared the delights of global culture and understanding.  One of the storytellers summed up the experience, “Telling stories at Charles House was a lot of fun.  The audience members and staff were very kind, and they even provided brownies as payment.”  Everyone had a great time.
