Program Description


Please note that this program is in person at the Noah Webster Library.

Join us for an evening filled with humor, charm, and wisdom! Nationally-acclaimed storyteller Motoko captivates audiences as she exquisitely blends ancient lore, origami, and oral memoirs from her childhood in Japan and her life as an immigrant in the U.S. Through her tales we journey beyond our imagination and return more whole.

A native of Osaka, Motoko has regaled audiences across the U.S. since 1993. She is the recipient of the National Storytelling Network’s 2017 Circle of Excellence Award, and is frequently featured in storytelling festivals across the U.S.  She is the author of A Year in Japan: Folktales, Songs, and Art for the Classroom.

This program is made possible by the Thomas F. Kilfoil Memorial Bequest, West Hartford Library Foundation.
