Tales from One Thousand and One Nights
Sep 16, 2017, 10:30 am
Storytellers Extraordinaire, Karl Behling & Janine Nishiguchi will enchant children of all ages with tales taken from One Thousand and One Nights. From "Aladdin's Wonderful Lamp" and "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" to "The Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor," audiences will be transported by magic carpet to other lands and other times. Following the storytelling, kids will have the chance to color in their own magic carpets to take home!
This event is Free and Open to the Public.
Karl Behling has taught elementary school for 34 years, and has been an inveterate storyteller for longer than he can remember. He is a Student Storyteller Coach, and his students appear regularly at the Weber State Storytelling Festival. Karl has been President of the Utah Storytelling Guild, and a founding member of the Farmington Bay chapter of USG.
His tales cover the globe from the Old West to the Civil War and the Appalachians, take a swing through the Caribbean and ramble down Main Street, Hometown, USA. Karl puts on a rollicking Mountain Man show for school groups, Boy Scout Camps, and anybody who appreciates hair-raising adventure.
Janine Nishiguchi has tales to tickle your ears and engage each listener. Enthusiastic tellings come to life as she connects to the audience. One listener said, "I felt like I was right there in the story!" She is currently the President of the Utah Storytelling Guild and a children's librarian. She started a youth storytelling festival in her local elementary and started a Davis County chapter of USG in 2012.
This event is made possible with the support of the Ogden Symphony Ballet Association, Weber Book Links, and Utah Humanities
