Story-teller visits Rimbey


Pictured above is story-teller Wendy Berner who captured the attention of more than 160 children recently at the Rimbey Municipal Library where she entertained the gathering as part of Library Month.

“I was invited here to tell stories by the Rimbey Library because it’s Library Month and this library is very supportive of doing all kinds of things to celebrate books, stories and literacy,” Berner said. “I tell stories to adults and teens – I like to say that because a lot of people think story-telling is just for little kids – and I’d say at least 50 per cent of my story-telling is to adults, but these kids today, yes, they were very receptive.”

Berner said she’ll be very busy over the next little while touring Quebec and Ontario before returning to her Calgary home.

“The kinds of stories I tell are like folk tales that are hundreds or thousands of years old. I think people of all ages really like them and it was great to be in Rimbey and it was great to see so many kids here today,” she concluded.
