Traditions are passed down through generations with stories, songs, and activities. Bring your children to the Mississippi Children’s Museum to experience the fun of storytelling together on January 13 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

On this special day, join us as we celebrate Mississippi’s finest storytellers from our past and listen to those with us now. This event is an artistic, literary adventure celebrating the art of storytelling in many forms with special guests, performances, and workshops. Storytelling can be told through a multitude of ways such as writing and illustrating books, acting, singing, dancing, visual arts, photography, and much more.

Activities will include:

  • Antoinette Badenhorst: Sculpture; Aesop Fables
  • Jerry Jenkins: West African Drums
  • Sarah Frances Hardy: Author and Illustrator
  • Marshall Ramsey: Cartoonist, Writer, and Speaker
  • Chuck Galey: Artist and Illustrator
  • Shannon Williford: Blues Harmonica Workshop
  • Dr. Wilma Mosley: Documentary Workshop

This event is included with $10 general admission and free with museum membership. MCM will be open on Monday, January 15 for a Magic Monday! Visit www.mschildrensmuseum.org for more information.

Special thank you to the Mississippi Book Festival for their support of MCM’s Storytelling Festival.
