Read about Selina's adventures on the Canadian Children's Book Week tour in 2013 : storytellingalberta.blogspot.com
Journeys unfold with every story told by Montreal Storyteller, Selina Eisenberg. A graduate of Concordia University with a B.A. in Early Childhood Education, Eisenberg’s flair for telling Eastern European stories began while teaching Pre-Kindergarten over 25 years ago.
Eisenberg’s craft has evolved from telling tales to toddlers to delighting children and the young-at-heart of all ages in Canada and the US. She skillfully adapts stories to suit her audiences, and draws them in through savetheir participation in interactive tales. With her youngest listeners, Eisenberg embellishes her narratives with everyday props as well as her own flannel-board creations to visually enhance their experience of the story. Eight years ago she was unexpectedly asked to tell a story to 84 youths (grades 4-6) and their teachers while chaperoning at their team-building retreat. With virtually no time to prepare and no flannel board by her side, Eisenberg captivated her audience with the use of her words, intonation, and projection of her voice. The tale was compelling and her storytelling capability moved to a new level. Eisenberg’s ability to fascinate and enthrall her audiences is demonstrated by invitations to return annually to regional schools. She is always amazed by students who greet her with their memories of her stories from the previous year, when they recall a “magic fry pan” or the “itch on a tongue”. Eisenberg’s newest passion is leading workshops for librarians and early childhood educators, and she is currently writing a children’s story of her own.
Selina is currently serving a second term as the national President of Storytellers of Canada.
