Mamma Griot and Her Rocking Story Bag 11/9/ 6:00PM to 7:30

The Mamma Griot and Her Rocking Story Bag event is scheduled for Thursday 11/9/2017 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Central Library.
The description for the event is: Join us for an interactive, family friendly program, in which Dr. Naima Johnston-Bush shares traditional folktales and songs that participants choose and sometimes create by selecting items from her Rocking Story Bag. Performing as a "griot" a member of a class of traveling poets, musicians, and storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history in parts of West Africa, each item tucked away in Mamma's bag represents a story or song from countries around the world. This program is an engaging joyous celebration of music, the universal bonding that occurs through storytelling and the beauty of diversity.

I don't remember if this is the same performer, but a couple of years ago, I took the grandson to the library to see this type of show. I think I liked it more than he did.
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.
