OFTA Hosts storyteller SUE BLACK

NOTE OFTA TIME CHANGE THIS MONTH: We will still meet on the 2nd Wednesday, September 10th but at 3:00 pm in the afternoon.

OFTA honors the AAUW Art Presenter Program’s 35th anniversary and features its exhibition (“House and Home” and “Masks”) this month.

Our Speaker is Ms. Susan Black, an award winning storyteller from Naperville, IL.
She will address OFTA and the general public from 3-4 pm on Wed. Sept. 10th as a part of her two day residency in Monmouth. During her stay on Sept. 9th and 10th, she will be doing storytelling presentations to hundreds of elementary school students from throughout Warren County.

You will also be thrilled by the extraordinary exhibit of international children’s art from twenty-nine countries around the world that the ART PRESENTER program has secured from the World Awareness Children’s Museum in Glens Falls, NY. Ms. Black will be highlighting these works in her presentations. The entire exhibit will be on open public display from September 6th-October 11th at the Buchanan Center.

Please join us to welcome Susan Black to our community and to hear how storytelling can “explore our cultural diversity while celebrating the common bonds we share with our brothers and sisters throughout the world.”
