The 27th annual New Jersey Storytelling Festival will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Howell Living History Farm in Lambertville. As part of the event, renowned storyteller Judith Black will lead participants in an interactive workshop titled Saving Our Planet, One Story at a Time.

Focusing on environmental and climate crises, Black will assist participants in creating original stories that will inform and motivate. Using a variety of teaching techniques (such as guided imagery) Black will show participants how to use storytelling to communicate important lessons.

Educators of all grades will learn how to mine personal stories and observations to address concerns about our stressed bio-sphere, create original stories that will inform and motivate and finally develop skills at story shaping and presentation.

This free and open to the public workshop is made possible by the Friends of the Howell Living History Farm and the New Jersey Storytelling Network. For more information, please contact Ken Karnas at, 862-268-2019 or visit to register.
