Newport Artists Market : The Story Space

The Newport Artists Market is on the first Saturday of every month at the Newport Substation. With the help of story friends and the support of the market committee, storytelling is now a regular part of the market. April was a busy one! Claire Saxby was in the chair for over an hour telling stories and sharing her books with visitors to the space. Dharma, songstress and creative force behind EVERLASTING BOOKS (238 Somerville Rd Kingsville) was in fine voice. EVERLASTING BOOKS stocks a wonderful collection for young people - many of the old favourites are to be found on her shelves. She is also a great supporter of local authors. Pictured with Dharma is Julia Reichstein from the Storytelling Guild (Vic). Julia's day job is as an archivist but she is soon to try her hand at improvisational puppet theatre. A relative new member to the Storytelling Guild - it was lovely to have her join us on Saturday.
