Share a Story, Build a World
Medford, Oregon (June 12, 2017) – Jackson County Library Services presents award-winning storyteller, Christopher Leebrick in “Share a Story, Build a World” at six branches this summer as part of the summer reading program lineup.
Christopher Leebrick has dazzled audiences with his remarkable storytelling ability since he was just thirteen years old. Children and adults will enjoy his extensive repertoire of world folk tales, legends, whoppers, and original stories. From the hills of Appalachia to the cowboy country of the Oregon high desert, from Edgar Allan Poe to Dr. Seuss, from native America to Africa, Leebrick offers a cornucopia of the world’s most entertaining tales.
Utilizing a rich flexible voice, a dynamic stage presence, and powerful acting, Chris brings the ancient art of storytelling alive for each and every audience member. Carefully tailoring each performance to suit the audience and the event, he also sets the mood for many of his tales with instruments such as the harmonica and the eastern cedar flute.
