Judy Sima, Storyteller

Award-winning storyteller, author and teaching artist, Judy is featured at conferences and festivals, schools and libraries throughout Michigan and across the country. Her children’s performances bubble over with humor, song and loads of audience participation. Among her many engaging, interactive workshops for all ages, “Awaken Your Inner Storyteller,” “Telling to Write,” and “Family Writing Nights” are favorites. Judy’s much sought after program, “Escape to Freedom,” she tells the compelling story of her mother’s encounter with the Gestapo, escape from Germany during WWII and adjustment to life in America. Known as the “Pied Piper of Storytelling,” Judy’s enthusiasm is contagious!
