The Power of Story with Ty Allan Jackson

September 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

The Mount welcomes back Ty Allan Jackson for a family program geared toward the creation and telling of stories!

Once upon a time…

Perhaps the most relevant term in all of storytelling. Those four little words make your ears perk up and bring you a little closer to the edge of your seat. But why?

In this talk/workshop we’ll talk about the power of story and give you some insight on how to create your own story! Whether your story is about superheroes, princesses or yourself, we will better define your happily ever after.

This one-hour workshop will be an entertaining blend of learning and fun, geared toward children in late elementary/early middle school.

This program will take place in the Dell (behind the Stable).
