Praise for Storyteller, Storyteacher:
The Power of Storytelling for Teaching and Living

"a highly readable how-to"

A committed teacher, storyteller, and listener presents a highly readable how-to about involving both adults and students in storytelling. Marni shows why storytelling can be so satisfying and enlarging for tellers young and old by discussing the meaning of anecdote, "just talk," personal tales, and age-old stories that tell aspects of one's own inner journey. Marni includes suggestions for developing personal stories, discovering family tellers and emulating them, and checking out resources in the library, as well as ideas about how to tell, how to coach others, and how not to be afraid of the power of a story to move us all to tears. A succinct but helpful "Resources for Storytellers" is also included.

"It is hard to put this book down"

From the winter 99 issue of Territorial Tattler:

What a wonderful book for storytellers who do workshops and for teachers who want to teach story telling techniques to students. Ms. Gillard's style of writing flows so smoothly and her information is so captivating, it is hard to put this book down. She gives such insight into both teacher and student thought processes that the reader can "see" and understand both views.

This is not a step-by-step how-to book, but an overview of what works, what to expect, and how to deal with personalities.

Even after being in education for twenty-three years, I found some hints to help in teaching all subjects. This book would be a great asset to any educational library but you will probably want your own copy.

Lois Hartman, Oklahoma City school librarian and storyteller

"One of the best..."

One of the best books I've found in my ever-expanding personal library is Marni Gillard's Storyteller, Storyteacher. For those storytellers who don't know this book, it is a gem! I devoured it, marking down pertinent passages, and I continue to find much material to think about. The bibs in the back are extensive.
Eldrbarry, a storyteller in the Pacific Northwest

"She...thanked me a thousand times over for telling her about it"

Dear Marni,

I think of you and your wonderful work...took your book with me to THE OUTER BANKS last week and as we were being evacuated by BONNIE, driving inland to Raleigh I began rereading your book and can't say often enough how much I love it.

My sister Rita treasures her copy as well. She tells me it is helping her a great deal as she works towards writing her story.

My friend Joyce Weiss, a storyteller from NYC bought a copy of your book at my recommendation. She called me yesterday and thanked me a thousand times over for telling her about it - she absolutely loves it and is so grateful that I told her about it. Your book arrived at her doorstep at just the right moment to give her courage...to continue her storytelling journey.

Barbara Aliprantis, New York City storyteller
