Seniors Storytelling Day will tell a wonderful story to you!

"The Best Day of My Life So Far...
Seniors Storytelling Day"
Sunday, November 14, 2010 at 2:00 PM
The Parkway Central Library *
The Free Library of Philadelphia

Inspired by her relationship with her grandmother, Benita Cooper started a a weekly storytelling and writing class at Philadelphia Senior Center. This class, The Best Day of My Life (So Far), is now a vibrant, multimedia storytelling project where older adults connect and share their stories with younger generations.

What happens when Philadelphia seniors open up by sharing stories from their lives? On Seniors’ Storytelling Day, be ready to smile, laugh and even cry as our city’s seniors take the stage to read stories that they have written, and answer questions from the audience.
Enjoy this video and get a taste of what to expect on Sunday:

And yes, The Best Day of My Life So Far...Storytelling Day has a Facebook Page!
