  Harley Storytelling event

 

 

Two-time Grammy award-winning artist Bill Harley will bring his songs and stories to the University of South Carolina campus Sept. 5 for a free concert and storytelling performance.

 

The event, at 7 p.m. in the Rutledge Chapel on USC’s Horseshoe, is open to the public; tickets are not required.

 

The Storytelling Experience is sponsored by USC’s School of Library and Information Science and the South Carolina Center for Children’s Books and Literacy.

 

An author, playwright, performing and recording artist, Harley uses song and story to paint a vibrant, humorous picture of growing up, school and family life. He is a regular commentator for NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and has been featured on PBS. He joined the National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence in 2001 and tours nationwide as an author, performing artist and keynote speaker.

 

His recordings have won awards including Parents' Choice, NAPPA (National Association of Parenting Publication Awards), ALA (American Library Association) and the highest honor from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio for his concert DVD, "Yes to Running!" filmed in conjunction with Montana PBS.

 

“Harley’s audiences are families, but it’s hard to tell who enjoys him more – parents or children,” writes the Los Angeles Times.
