Come enjoy stories for all ages, on Saturday, September 16, 2017, from noon to 6 p.m. Storytellers from throughout New Jersey and Tri-State area will convene at Howell Living History Farm (www.HowellFarm.org) in Lambertsville, New Jersey as the finest storytellers will be offering bales of laughter with farm-related stories and more.

Playwright, songwriter, and storyteller Oni Lasana performs in DOIN' DUNBAR AS 'LIAS' MOTHER featuring the dialect poetry of African-American writer Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906), in the second performance in our Twilight Tales series. Tailored to the setting, and illustrated with materials from the Mercer collection, her entertaining program offers a theatrical portrayal of Dunbar’s poems.
Lasana mixes humor, drama and an interactive storytelling style as she imagines and brings to life a character from one of Dunbar’s works. The program is followed by refreshments, an opportunity to meet the performer, and a chance to explore the museum. The performance is appropriate for ages 8 and up.
