Celebrate author-illustrator Evan Turk’s THE STORYTELLER, a magical exploration of the power of storytelling to capture the imagination and inspire a new generation of young storytellers.
Author-illustrator Evan Turk shares some of his earliest work and talks about how the books he made as a child are connected with the picture books he writes and illustrates today.
Mel Schuit takes us inside the book to get a closer look at the artwork in Evan Turk’s THE STORYTELLER.
Evan Turk’s picture book THE STORYTELLER was inspired by Moroccan hlaykia, or public storytellers, and the ways their tales and traditions bind generations together. We highlight some amazing efforts to carry on centuries-old traditions and to build new ones, all through storytelling.
In The Storyteller, a young boy uses the power of oral storytelling to share a miracle with his neighbors. Lauren Davis explains how we can bring such miracles even closer to home by making oral storytelling part of our children’s bedtime routine.
