Book Suey Storyteller Series: Kenny Karpov

Book Suey’s storyteller Series continues with local writer Kenny Karpov.

About the Storytelling Series:
There is a unique dynamic between the written and spoken word. In reading aloud what is written down, in its horizontal and linear construction, in expressing verbally what the most basic form of communication is, the speaker becomes more than just a reader, but a Storyteller. Something magical happens when there is a release of words from the page utilizing our voice. In the age of media, of solitary observation of screens and the silent withdrawal of the individual to read, we forsake our common unifying bond, the communal splendor of a campfire. The hearth of human civilization revolves around the fundamental communal gathering and always is the Storyteller in the center.
With each Storytelling Series event, Book Suey will present a local writer/author to speak, to tell us a story, invite us to experience a piece of their world, their vision -- illuminating something we were unable to see before. 

CONTEMPLATION. CONVERSATION. COMMUNITY. Book Suey is a cooperatively run bookshop for everyone operating 2x a week in Bank Suey.
