Laughter may not be the only medicine, but it’s the most fun to take!

Story provided by Newport Public Library

Storyteller Ken Iverson is coming to Literacy Park at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, July 31. He is part of Newport Public Library’s wildly popular summer reading program, Dig Into Reading.

Ken has been telling stories most of his life. An early fascination with Jonathan Winters led him to write and perform stories for friends when he was 17 and he hasn’t stopped yet! He loves the connection that sharing stories creates and how the telling of a story can bring people together. Ken believes the old adage “Laughter is the Best Medicine” is close to true. It’s not the only medicine, it’s the most fun to take.

Sometimes using a drum, he tells traditional and contemporary folktales and myths from around the world for audiences of all ages. A third prize winner at the Seattle Folklife Festival’s Liar’s Contest, Ken’s energetic telling of Jack tales, Arthurian tales and world folktales has been enthusiastically received.

Wednesday, July 31, Iverson will also be telling tales at Waldport Public Library (10 a.m.) and Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City (6:30 p.m.). On Thursday, August 1, he will be at Toledo Public Library (11 a.m.) and Siletz Public Library (1:00 p.m.)

Summer Reading at Newport Public Library happens every year thanks to the generous support of Newport businesses and private supporters. If it weren’t for Umpqua Bank, La Quinta Inn and Suites, The Sylvia Beach Hotel, Jeannette Hofer, Janis & Ross Neigebauer and the Lincoln County Library District, summers at the library would be much quieter…too quiet for the children’s library staff!
