how a Scottish born storyteller would come to tell and Indonesian folk
tale?” photo Todd Wong
Storytellers spoke in both Mandarin Chinese and English, as they
shared storyteller duties at the April 23 Cric Crac, organized by the
Vancouver Story Tellers Association. This was a collaborative
effort with the Taiwanese Cultural Society. It was a great
experience to listen to each language expressed so eloquently and
expressively by each storyteller.
As well, Leilani also told a Paul Yee story, from his book, Tales from Gold Mountain.
