Storytelling Marathon at LaSalle Academy

I'm printing the press release verbatim for this unique event:
Diane Wolkstein and CelebrateStory are proud to present a marathon telling of the great epic: Monkey King: Journey to the West.

Featuring 26 amazing storytellers from the United States and Canada: Rita Auerbach, Laura Bobrow, Ruth Danziger, Julie Della Torre, David Elyha, Therese Folkes-Plair, Mark Horn, Linda Humes, Joy Kelly, Justin Jaron Lewis, Jack McKeon, Stuart Nager, Ron O'Reilly, Norman Perrin, Eli Rarey, Regina Ress, Thelma Ruffin Thomas, Mary Ann Schmidt, Ken Setterington, Ellen Shapiro, Ron Sopyla, Karen Thibodeau, Gioia Timpanelli, Kira Van Deusen, Rivka Willick, and Diane Wolkstein. Each storyteller will tell a section of the epic. Your three-day ticket grants you admission to as little or as much of this historic event as you wish: come to see your favorite section, or stay for the whole adventure! This adventure story of self cultivation is appropriate for children 8 and up. Reservations are encouraged as space is extremely limited.
