Storyteller Elizabeth Ellis presents her tales of American heroines in a free program for kids.
Elizabeth is a versatile and riveting teller of Appalachian and Texas tales and stories of heroic American women, though her personal stories are arguably her best. She has captivated over 250,000 children and countless adults at schools, universities and festivals in her 25 year career as a storyteller. Elizabeth's storytelling journey has taken her from her local library to as far away as New Zealand. She was selected as a "Listener's Choice" at the 30th Anniversary National Storytelling Festival and a Storyteller-In-Residence at the International Storytelling Center. She was the first recipient of the John Henry Faulk Award from the Tejas Storytelling Association and the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Association.
This program is made possible by the Friends of the Grand Prairie Library.
