Event Shows Power of Stories

The Saginaw News (Saginaw, MI) , October 17, 2004


Diverse styles of storytelling -- from musical expression to Hmong story cloths to recipe stories to workshops on using stories to help Alzheimer's patients -- highlight the second annual Michigan Story Festival.

The event is a collaboration between Central Michigan University, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and the Mount Pleasant community and features national, regional and local storytellers, workshops for teachers and health care professionals, musical performances, artistic renderings, exhibitions and poetry.

"An exciting component of this year's festival is the call for recipes and stories that accompany them -- a celebration of culture expressed through food," says Sue Ann Martin, dean of CMU's College of Communication and Fine Arts.
