Cynthia Bishop

“Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. Tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.” That anonymous quote captures an insight that makes sense to Cynthia Bishop, a storyteller who grew up in Greece, Italy and Egypt. As a young person, she collected folk tales from around the world, and as a founding member of Salt City Storytellers, Bishop learned to perform traditional as well as personal tales. She will perform some of those tales for us, and will talk about her work as a storyteller and as a narrator of audio books for youth.
