Elizabeth and Beve Matson
~ AUGUST 23 ~
We are thrilled that this mother-daughter team will share the mic at Tea 'N' Tales on August 23. A wonderful pair of tellers.
Beverly enjoys telling personal stories and adopting folktales. She loves the connections that storytelling creates with an audience. "One story leads to another, and I'm drawn to the ways that stories touch the heart."
She is a retired teacher/librarian where she became renowed as a wonderful storyteller, captivating children and adults alike. She has told at the Toronto Storytelling Guild at Harbourfront and the Baden Storytellers Guild.
Beve has directed, performed, and costumed for Guelph Little Theatre and Puppets Elora. Each recognized her work with special awards.
It is not surprising that out of such a nest, one rich with living arts experiences including the love of story, that Beve's daughter, Elizabeth grew up to become a storyteller and librarian. Elizabeth lives in Wisconsin and works at the Hedberg Public Library as the Head of Youth Services. She has started a Teen Storytelling Troupe at her library and a peer storytelling coaching group with other Wisconsin storytellers in her area.
GGS feels blessed when her home visits coincide with their events and Elizabeth becomes the featured teller as she will be on August 23.
