Boca Library Hosts Storyteller Judy Sima

Boca Raton Public Library launches its 2019 Story Central theme, “Cultural Connections,” with a performance by professional storyteller, Judy Sima, at the Downtown Library on Saturday, January 19 at 4:00 pm. In “Around the World with Story,” you can travel around the world and back again without leaving the comfort of Boca Raton! Prepare to be entertained, enchanted and inspired by Michigan storyteller Judy Sima, as she shares timely and timeless folktales from the U.S. to Russia, ancient Arabia, Japan and more—all with an adult spirit and sensibility.

Judy Sima is an award-winning storyteller, author and teaching artist who has been featured at library and storytelling events across the nation. Known as the “Pied Piper of Storytelling in Metro Detroit,” Judy is a recipient of the Distinguished National Service Award from the National Storytelling Network and the current president of the Detroit Story League.

“One of the amazing things about storytelling is that when we listen, we travel the world from the comfort of our seats. The storyteller is our guide, and the journey can be nothing short of extraordinary,” notes Story Central facilitator, Caren S. Neile, Ph.D., MFA. “Plus we don’t have to worry about passports, airports or travel sickness!” A performance storyteller and author, she has taught storytelling and writing for twenty-five years in universities and community settings. She currently teaches at Florida Atlantic University.
