Bio:Linda Gorham calls her style “Storytelling with Attitude!” so prepare to expect the unexpected! Her engaging stories often have surprising twists and unconventional humor. She performs internationally as a storyteller, speaker, and workshop presenter.

Linda uses movement, humor, and sometimes zaniness as she tells imaginative multicultural folktales updated “with attitude.” She also tells character education stories, trickster stories, twisted fairy tales, and of course, stories that make your spine tingle and your hair stand on edge. Whether Linda is performing for adults, elementary/middle/high school students, or preschoolers, her energy is contagious and her stories memorable.

Linda’s special programs include Greek Mythology stories, stories from The Civil War, and “I Shape Freedom,” stories of African American heroes: Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, Barack Obama, Wilma Rudolph, Madam C.J. Walker, and The Little Rock Nine.

Linda’s newest program is “100 Years of African American Accomplishment.”
