Karen Maurer is on February 16th, 2020 performing “Earthlings! Stories from our Planet”. Karen Maurer started telling stories in childhood as a way of keeping her younger sisters and brothers entertained. As a Youth Services Librarian, she used storytelling to foster a love of words - spoken, read, sung - and stories in all their forms. Her storytelling style reminds listeners of sitting in the kitchen with a friend and a cup of tea. Expect to laugh when Karen tells stories. Expect to think. Expect to learn a different way to see the world.
