Marilyn Kinsella, Taleypo the Storyteller, of Fairview Heights, IL, has been telling stories since 1981. She tells stories"...from nursery schools to nursing homes." Her folktales come from many cultures, but her favorite stories are those she wrote about growing up in her small, Midwestern town.
Her stories are full of energy and participation for the young and a delicate blend of action and word imaging for the young-at-heart. As a full-time, free-lance teller she travels to where stories want to be told. Besides telling, she often leads workshops, mentors new storytellers, and performs puppet plays. She has told stories to hundreds of schools in the Midwest and has been featured at many festivals including The St Louis Storytelling Festival, The Fox Valley Festival, and The Illinois Storytelling Festival.
