After a Two-year Successful World Tour, the Yellow Springs Storybox Returns!
Remember our beautiful Knit Knot StoryBox created by our own Jafa Girls, Corinne Bayraktaroglu and Nancy Mellon? For eight months in 2008 and 2009, under the watchful eye of former library employee, Carolion Grailbear, our StoryBox was centrally located in our Yellow Springs branch Library, collecting your stories. Since then it has traveled worldwide to numerous places, such as Ireland, Switzerland and Israel, sharing our stories and collecting new ones from people at each celebrated stop.
Our YS StoryBox was so very popular! It has had continuing requests to visit in other towns in many countries. That is why it was away, and traveling, for nearly two years.
Celebrate the return of our Yellow Springsʼ StoryBox, from its around-the-world journey.
Join us Saturday, March 12th from 2-4 p.m. at the Yellow Springs Library
. At this celebration, the founder of the International Storybox Project and storyteller, Dr. Kevin Cordi; the creators of Yellow Springsʼ unique StoryBox, Corrine and Nancy; local StoryBox Ambassador, Jonatha Wright; storyteller, Harold Wright and some of the local Yellow Springs folks who contributed their stories; will tell about our StoryBoxʼs success, and read from the numerous stories collected on this long and delightful journey. These tales will include special stories contributed by Carolion, told in her memory.
Additionally there is a new offshoot of the StoryBox Project, the StoryBanner Project, inspired by the StoryBoxes. Some of these will be on display March 12th. The premier "kick-off' celebration for the Story Banner Project will be right here in Yellow Springs as part of our StoryBox celebration.
Please Join Us!!
And thank you for your part in making our Yellow Springs StoryBox such a worldwide success!!!
Jonatha Wright, YS StoryBox Ambassador
