Free family storytelling in Bowring Park on Sunday with Kathy Jessup

Bowring Park is turning 100 and is going to celebrate! On Sunday, July 13 from noon to 4:30 p.m. the Bowring Park Foundation is hosting a birthday party with free events for everyone.

See the list of events here.

One of the events is the next in our family storytelling series. Every Sunday afternoon for the rest of the summer, there will be free family-friendly storytelling at the Peter Pan statue, with a variety of local and visiting storyteller. For this Sunday only, the action will shift up to the Bungalow as all the 100th birthday activities are taking place up in that end of the park.

Sunday's storyteller is Kathy Jessup, a professional storyteller visiting from Alberta. Over the years she’s performed her original tales in countless schools, libraries, concerts and festivals across Canada — from Inuvik to Regina, and from Vancouver to Halifax, and now in St. John's. Kathy’s stories and articles have appeared in various publications including the children’s magazine chickaDEE, and the Alberta Centennial anthology Under the WideBlue Sky: Alberta Stories to Read and Tell published by Red Deer Press.

All other storytelling sessions for the rest of the summer are still scheduled at the Peter Pan Statue. Next week: Mary Fearon!
