by Pinedale Fine Arts Council
February 25, 2008
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is proud to present Grammy-nominated storyteller, Diane Ferlatte, performing live at the Sublette County Library (Pinedale) Lovatt Room on Thursday, March 6 at 7 p.m.
Diane has thrilled and touched audiences the world over with tales of inspiration, struggle, humor, and love. She tells true-life personal and historical stories, as well as folktales, legends, myths, and fables. She frequently incorporates American Sign Language as well as music and song into her many programs.
Diane has wowed audiences across the globe from Graz, Austria, to Auckland, New Zealand. She has toured and performed internationally many times over, including Holland, France, Bermuda, Sweden, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Diane has visited almost every state in the U.S., including Hawaii and Alaska, to perform at major festivals, theaters, conferences, universities, schools, libraries, senior centers, detention facilities, churches---you name it. Providing workshops for other storytellers, ministers, and teachers, as well as serving as keynote speaker/storyteller at professional conferences and conventions has become a rewarding part of her work.
Diane's 8 recordings have all won awards including: American Library Association - Parents' Choice, National Parenting Publications - iParenting Media Storytelling World - Youth Storytelling Pegasus Awards and her last CD, “Whickety Whack-Brer Rabbit is Back” was nominated for a 2007 Grammy in the children’s story telling category though it lost out to a Harry Potter reading.
