Les nuits du 20, 22 et 24 juillet 1983 Le Récit de Shéhérazade de Bruno de La Salle, Abbi Patrix et Pascal Fauliot était programmé au Festival d’Avignon et enregistré par France Culture. C’était la première fois que le Festival proposait un spectacle pendant toute une nuit, la première fois qu’il accueillait des conteurs, la première fois que l’on entendait des contes à Avignon. Ce fut un succès : 3000 personnes assistèrent à cet évènement tandis que des centaines de milliers d’autres l’écoutaient en même temps sur les ondes de France Culture.

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.
