More about Tim and Karin:
Karin Werner began a life-long love affair with stories when she received her first library card in Cody, Wyoming. Many library cards and story events later, she reaches back into myth and memory to create her own personal style. Karin enjoys telling to a variety of audiences and ages. She is active with the Pilgrim Tellers who tell Epic Tales and has performed at Tell It On Tuesday, Berkeley Botanical Garden's "Spooky Tales" and has appeared as Featured Teller in local swaps. Using her improv and theater background, Karin brings a unique voice to her storytelling. Based in Pinole, she also conducts Inter-generational Story Circles and Memoir Writing Workshops.
Storyteller Tim Ereneta of Berkely, California, connects ancient stories to modern day life, as he shares classic and forgotten fairy tales, with audiences of all ages - but especially adults.
Fairy tales? Did you say fairy tales?
Yes, fairy tales. But don't expect pixie dust, unicorns, and rainbows. Tim tells the "old school" tales, in all their grim details, where parents abandon their children in the woods to witches and monsters, and happy endings include justice served up with an axe.He's told stories on stages from Athens, Georgia, to Chennai, India. Recognized by the National Storytelling Network in 2006 as a storyteller of major and unique performing talent who has not yet received wide public recognition, Tim brings 20 years of theatrical experience to his performances.
