On Thursday, February 12th, Athlone School will host Jamie Oliviero for an evening of storytelling.
February is "I Love to Read Month" at Athlone School and there are many guest readers dropping by on a weekly basis.
The tradition of storytelling fits well with this, as this was once the only way that different tales and stories were passed down through the generations of different cultural communities. There is magic in the sitting and listening to the spoken word, as opposed to reading it. The inflections and nuance in the voice of the teller add so much to the emotional connection we feel for the words. Often there is a lesson to be leanred too.
So please join us for a fun evening of tale-telling with a master storyteller, Jamie Oliviero, in the Athlone School library from 6:30 - 7:30pm.
See you there!
