  Illinois Storytelling's Open Mic and Featured Teller

Featured Teller Mama Edie Armstrong is a bilingual storyteller (Spanish/Enlgish), published writer, percussionist, speech/language pathologist, and voice-over artist who has provided storytelling performances and workshops for parents, teachers, children, social workers, steel workers, attorneys, the corporate sector, and more since 1989. Largely inspired by her passionate regard for her African and Native American ancestries, she believes that the power of story can increase knowledge of and belief in one’s self. Having performed in West Africa (Ghana, Togo, Benin), Mexico, South Africa, India and Trinidad, Mama Edie is ready to share a journey with you. Whether fun and frollicky or somber and serene, Mam Edie's presentations are powerful reminders of our own beauty and strength and the gifts we are to the world.
