*Click to view the event lineup!*


Kim is a nationally-recognized storyteller hailing from Virginia.  "Kim is a master at seamlessly building bridges between story, to song, to story.  Like all good storytellers she evokes both laughter and tears, but her smooth silky voice, impeccable timing and dead-on anticipation of her listeners' needs place her at the pinnacle of her craft."  In her work as a humorist, storyteller, singer and songwriter, she has taken home an armload of awards and recognition and her first book is scheduled for release in spring 2014 through Familius Publishers.  We are so excited to be able to bring her to our festival this year!


Will Hornyak has inspired and educated audiences as a storyteller and teacher of storytelling throughout the Northwest and beyond since 1994.  Said the Oregonian of his work, "Storyteller par excellence... endless wit, boundless imagination and an ability to transport children and adults into an amazing imaginary world." 


The Noiseguy is Charlie Williams, known as the zany czar of sound.  Because he believes humor is an important life skill, his stories encourage kids to laugh at everyday annoyances.  This vocal sound impressionist can imitate the sounds of everything from planes, trains, automobiles and monster trucks, to dinosaurs and beatboxing.  He's also a kids' comedian, author and illustrator!


Anne-Louise Sterry is a speaker, recording artist, author, singer-songwriter and storyteller.  She performs across America and Europe as herself and as her exuberant alter-ego Aunt Lena, sharing a thought-provoking and hilarious approach to living life audaciously and making a real and positive difference in people's lives.
