CLARK—Professional storyteller Rivka Willick will perform Chanukah stories for adults at the Dec. 15 meeting of the sisterhood of Temple Beth O’r/Beth Torah in Clark. A short business meeting will precede the program, which starts at 8:30 p.m.
Willick creates and performs spoken word stories for adults, teens, children and general audiences. She is the New Jersey liaison for the National Storytelling Network, storytelling chairman of The Folk Project and chairwoman of the 2008 NJ Storytelling Festival.
This year Willick took her stories on the road. She performed her one-woman show, “Labor Daze” (400 years of stories about birth), in Orlando, Fla. and Washington, D.C. She was commissioned to create an original story about Annis Boudinot Stockton (one of America’s first poets) for the Morven Museum’s 4th of July Extravaganza, which celebrated the anniversary of Princeton being the temporary capital of the US. This year she presented for the first time at the National Storytelling Network’s National Convention.
The public is invited. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to 732-381-8403 by Dec. 12.
