 Professional storyteller Heather McNeil visited Kenya in order to listen to traditional stories told by twelve of the over 40 different ethnic groups. She sat inside huts, around campfires, and in corn fields to hear stories of tricksters, slave trade and the animals of the savannah. She will describe how she put the StorySafari together, share the successes and challenges of her adventure, and tell one of the stories. Copies of her book, Hyena and the Moon: Stories to Tell from Kenya, will be available for sale.
