FOOL in the House with Bruno de la Salle!

FOOL - festival of oral literatures is pleased to invite you to a FOOL in the House concert on December 11 featuring the great French storyteller Bruno de la Salle.  He will be telling in French and English.  Bruno is the founder/director of the Conservatoire contemporain de Littérature Orale.  His passion, throughout more than forty years of storytelling, has been re-discovering the world's epic traditions.  He is in Canada touring a performance of the Odyssey (on December 10, at Toronto Reference Library).  He is also an extraordinary teller of folktales, original stories, and his own history of becoming a storyteller and singer-of-tales.  His book Le Conteur Amoureux is a superb account of his philosophy, storytelling journey, and repertoire.
