Story from Newport Library
Storyteller Sarah Hauser toi perform at Lincoln County Libraries
Lincoln County’s public libraries’ Dream Big, READ! summer reading programs feature storyteller Sarah Hauser for their second week of summer fun on Wednesday and Thursday, June 27 and 28. All children and families are invited to attend one of these free programs.
Sarah Hauser told her first story to an audience at the Newport Performing Arts Center during the 2000 Stories by the Sea Storytelling Festival. It started her off on a journey of telling stories professionally for eight years, delighting audiences with her sense of humor and drama.
Sarah enjoys telling folktales from around the world, and is especially fond of stories that include animals that talk. She also tells personal tales about her childhood, her various pets with special challenges, and family history.
Sarah has shared her tales at schools, camps, The Oregon Zoo and in Portland, storytelling concerts at Kennedy School. She has also been a featured teller on Metro East Community Media’s storytelling program and can be seen on late night cable TV, telling a story about growing up with her next door neighbor, Linda Sue. Sarah also performs with Anne Penfound and Anne Rutherford as Storytellers Three at Artichoke Music’s Backgate Stage and other venues.
Sarah returns to libraries in Lincoln County this week. Wednesday, June 27, Hauser will be at Waldport Public Library (10 a.m.), Newport Public Library (1 p.m.), and Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City (6:30 p.m.). On Thursday, June 28, she will be at Toledo Public Library (11 a.m.) and Siletz Public Library (1:00 p.m.).
