Storyteller slated to perform on Sunday

FORT HUNTER — Storyteller Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi will perform at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site on Sunday at 6 p.m. as part of the annual Not Just for Kids Storytelling series.

Her performance titled, “Conflagrated Childhood Misadventures and Grown Up Reckonings,” will take place outdoors under a tent near the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center. The show will move indoors in case of heavy rain. Guests are invited to linger, chat, and enjoy refreshments after the show. The event is free.

Hartin-Gelardi has been a storyteller since 1991. She regularly combines art and storytelling in her work believing that “creating a piece of art from images in a story sets the stage for the words and stimulates the imagination.” She is one of the founders of the Dutchess Interfaith Story Circle and a cofounder of tall Tale/Short Story Productions, which produces storytelling events for adults in the Kingston area.

The Not Just for Kids Storytelling series continues with two more Sunday performances: Sheila Arnold, Aug. 25, and Sandor Schuman, Sept. 8.
