Event Details

The Institute Library is sponsoring a monthly story sharing group
on the third Thursday of each month from 6:00pm-8:00pm.
The group will meet on the third floor of the Institute Library, 847 Chapel Street.

Storytelling at the Institute Library

The group gives its members an opportunity to share stories in a very informal atmosphere. The stories may be of any kind – traditional folk tales, myths, stories of personal experience, etc. The group is open to all levels of experience, so people with no formal experience of storytelling can try things out in a supportive atmosphere. No one is required to tell; if you simply want to listen for a while that’s fine.   If you feel so moved come to the first session with a story ready.

We hope to encourage people to discover stories (their own or others), to become more skilled at telling them, and to build community. The group and the individuals in it will determine which is the most important. The group will be coordinated by Arnie Pritchard, local storyteller and Board Chair of the Connecticut Storytelling Center.

Meetings are from 6:00pm to 8:00pm on the third Thursday of every month.

Organizer

The Institute Library

The Institute Library, New Haven’s oldest independent literary institution and one of America’s last remaining membership libraries, was founded in 1826 by eight young working men dedicated to "mutual assistance in the attainment of useful knowledge."  Coeducational since 1835, the library flourished for decades as the heart of democratic intellectual life in New Haven, offering lectures, literature, debates, and classes to men and women from a wide range of social and educational backgrounds.

In 2011, the library formally renewed its commitment to the cultural life of New Haven with expanded space and hours, community partnerships, and a wide range of new events and programs. To learn more, please call or EMAIL today!
