Sherry’s not-so-scary stories about things that go bump in the night, told through rhyme, stimulating language, oral response, and vivid visual imagery, leave younger students wide-eyed one moment and laughing the next. Sherry adapts the program for older students with goosebump-guaranteed tales from folklore, literature, poetry, and urban legends.
Sherry Norfolk is an internationally acclaimed storyteller, appearing at the International Storytelling Center, the Singapore Storytelling Festival, and many more festivals, schools, libraries, and universities nationwide.
