Marylyn Peringer's StorySave Project
STORYSAVE AWARD GIVEN TO MARYLYN PERINGER
Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada announced at the Conference in Vancouver this past July that esteemed storyteller Marylyn Peringer is the 2017 recipient of the StorySave Award.
Marylyn is graciously ecstatic to have her voice preserved on the recordings. Her plan is to make a double CD featuring selection from her French-Canadian repertoire on one disc and Maltese folk tales and personal stories about her family connections to Malta on the other disc.
Over the years StorySave recordings have been financially sustained by numerous groups and individuals from the storytelling communities across Canada. We need to raise funds for studio time, mixing, art work, design and more. Each of us can play a part in supporting Marylyn's StorySave Recording. Here's how:
* Host a house concert with your guild
* Have a garage sale
* Host a tea where you tell stories to friends
* Make a personal donation
* Come up with your own original idea
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. The next Conference will be held in May, 2 months earlier than in past years. We need the funds as soon as possible to move forward with the project. Please send your contributions by cheque made out to Storytellers of Canada. Please write in the note on the cheque that the donation is designated for the Peringer StorySave project.
You can also donate online through Canada Helps, on our donate page: https://www.storytellers-conteurs.ca/en/donate-now.html Please be sure to select “Marylyn Peringer Project” as the project you’d like your donation to go to.
Remember that you are eligible for a charitable receipt when you donate to SC-CC and its projects.
MARYLYN PERINGER's discovery of French-Canadian folk tales began her over 30-year storytelling career, which has taken her into thousands of schools, libraries and community centres across Canada. Besides her French-Canadian repertoire, Marylyn tells classical legends of Greece and Rome, world folklore of the stars and constellations, riddle stories and Maltese tales from her maternal heritage.
She is Storytelling Toronto's co-Resident-Teacher and every July leads the four-day summer Intensive course open to both beginning and experienced storytellers.
