Kamishibai Storytime

Program Description

Event Details

In this Japanese tradition, a professional storyteller reveals a series of illustrations contained in a storybox as the narrative unfolds.  Before TV & comic books existed in Japan, there was Kamishibai (kami = paper; shibai = theatre).  With a wooden box, illustrations and a great narrator to tell the story, children will be enthralled with the stories and pictures! Kamishibai Storytime is on the first Wednesday of the month from 10-10:30am and on the third Monday of the month from 4-4:30pm.

This storytime program is presented by Write Out Loud San Diego. The Mission of Write Out Loud is to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud to audiences of all ages.
