Fourth-generation storyteller Lyn Ford shares "Home-Fried Tales" rooted in her family's multicultural African American storytelling traditions. Lyn's programs are enhanced with rhythm and rhyme, history and mystery, and humor and heart. Lyn is an Ohio teaching artist who has presented workshops for literacy, early childhood education, storytelling, and diversity at events across the country. Lyn calls her stories "Home-Fried Tales" to honor her father, who was a terrible cook and the best storyteller she ever heard. Lyn learned to "stir up, season, and simmer" her folktale adaptations and original stories while sitting knee-to-knee with elders who passed on their own special gifts from the oral tradition.
