Anne Glover leaves her audience in a merry tangle of string wherever she goes.
And now the award-winning storyteller brings her act to the Sooke library in Wintertime Dreaming on Saturday (Feb. 8).
Glover combines her entertaining storytelling with string art.
She learned a few basic string figures as a child, but it wasn’t until her late teens that she realized there are string figures all over the world, and they have been an important part of many indigenous cultures for thousands of years.
Glover has observed the power of string figures to teach, create community, improve reading, inspire all ages and on occasion “drive teachers and parents crazy.”
Wintertime Dreaming is sponsored by Sooke Region Literacy Project and is a free event. Glover performs from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
