Carol McGirr's Celebration of Life

The storytelling community lost a hugely influential member on January 2, 2019. Carol McGirr was a StorySave teller, and founder of the long-lived Fireside Epic series. Carol’s impact on Canadian storytelling was profound. She believed “storytellers come and go. It is the story that lives happily ever after.” Our condolences to Carol's friends and family.

A Celebration of Life in Story and Song, will be held for Carol on April 1, 2019 (Carol's birthday) at Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Ave.

More details will be available soon.
