Stories About Turtle Island
Saturday, June 4 at Everybody Reads Bookstore in Lansing beginning at 1:00 p.m., Stories About Turtle Island is a free storytelling and music event celebrating homegrown stories of North America - also called Turtle Island. Melissa Dey Hasbrook will tribute her ancestors and the land: the inspirations for her new book Circle...Home. Wildcrafter/musician/biologist Barb Barton will tell how hummingbird came to be in the logo of the Central Michigan Wild Rice Camp. She'll songify, too. Prelisten to her music at Reverbnation. I'll tell the story of my recent encounter with painted turtle while illustrating Circle...Home. Please come share your stories, laughter and spirit. An open mic will be inviting you to storytell, sing or just be a part of the lore and the magic.
