About this Event

"To hear a story is to be touched in heart and mind, in body and spirit. The storyteller gives the tale, the listener receives it, responding out of his or her own being. The story comes alive. It flourishes and grows."

About Storyteller Mary Wiggin:

For over 15 years, Mary Wiggin has delighted audiences with her storytelling. She has been a frequent featured teller at the Ottawa Storytellers Series at the National Arts Centre, at Arts Court, and at the Children’s Storytelling Festival. She also tells in a variety of community settings such as seniors programs, schools, and fundraising events. In 2016, Mary toured British Columbia with The Game’s Afoot: Stories from Sherlock Holmes, and returned to Vancouver Island in 2018 with Oatcakes and Heartaches: Scottish Tales Carried Over the Ocean.

She favours folktales and fairy tales with strong heroines and sound plots, but listeners should be ready for some surprises. Her no-nonsense style is the perfect set-up for the uncanny and the fantastic. She tells mainly to adults, but also enjoys entertaining younger audiences, especially her granddaughters who still think Gran’s tales are worth a listen.
