May’s theme for 'Stories in the Club' is Adult Fairytales and coincides with Mother's Day. Why not bring your Mum?

Tellers will be: Teeya Blatt, Ollie Heathwood, John Imbrogno, Sarah Temporal and Jenni Cargill-Strong.

1. Teeya Blatt, writer, poet and teacher, will tell the fairytale, The Princess and the Bag of Stones, which she wrote for a young girl who was having trouble dealing with the separation of her parents and adjusting to a new school. It's about releasing your voice, something Teeya loves more and more to encourage her young women friends to do.

2. Ollie Heathwood has been off with the fairies for most of her life, and more recently she has created the Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail. Ollie has had a varied career as an environmental educator, community worker with vulnerable children and their families, and music theatre writer and director. She will tell a unique fairy story in a collaborative process with the audience.

3. John Imbrogno is a passionate storyteller and was a member of the ‘Byron Circle of Tellers’. He has been working with young men and men for over 10 years and uses story as therapy in his work. He is a senior facilitator for a variety of rites of passage programs as well as men’s behaviour change programs and is father to two boys and a girl.

4. Sarah Temporal is a slam poet, writer and teacher from Murwillumbah. She will re-tell 'Rapunzel' as a tale for women of our time. 

5. Curator of Stories in the Club, professional storyteller, Jenni Cargill-Strong will tell the ancient, dark, sexy, French version of Red Riding Hood, 'Le Histoire du Grandmere', in which the girl is a clever trickster and gets away with the help of three old women.
