LoiS tells stories just for you

See LoiS in a kaleidoscope of several storytelling programs

Lois Sprengnether Keel, (LoiS), is a Michigan storyteller, and has a wide variety of storytelling programs or can create one just for you.

LoiS tells stories from the Great Lakes or your choice of country or continent (for example Australia or Africa), spooky stories, Native American tales (especially Anishinabe - also called Chippewa or Ojibwe), tall tales, specific characters or animals (such as Paul Bunyan, the Hodja, Anansi, Rabbit, Turtle and others).  

Historical reenactments include a woman who experienced the Underground Railroad and the Civil War homefront, a one-room schoolteacher, a “hired girl”, and 1950s memories. Her newest program is about how Michigan provided 75% of the smuggled alcohol in Prohibition for “High Times in Dry Times.”

A program of LoiS storytelling may also be enriched by the use of puppets, music, dance, or American Sign Language.

You can also find LoiS in the MI Arts and Humanities Touring Grants Directory

After 50 years as both a librarian and storyteller, LoiS is comfortable with groups of all ages and sizes.

A certified Word Weaving instructor, she loves to spread the joy of storytelling and its many uses.  LoiS has been storytelling since 1970.

Her workshops include: the Basics of Storytelling; Interactive Storytelling; Resources for Storytelling; Storytelling Thematically for Teachers; Storytelling with Puppets; and Story Starters.

LoiS has a wide variety of programs reaching around the world and back in time.

Of course we did assume that as a seasoned storyteller, LoiS would deliver an excellent program. Indeed we were correct, but we did not realize that she is also a master at stepping in and emceeing the program in a professional manner.
