Storyteller Cassie Cushing brings to life traditional stories for adult and young adult audiences.
Ancient Myths and Folktales reverberate with time-tested messages – understandings of life, love, identity and adventure. Stories, in general, are for everyone, but some are not meant for little ears. So, take a night off, leave the children at home, and come to a different, but nonetheless, real world of (sometimes) dark discoveries and dazzling adventures.
Cassie loves the way stories bring people together. She especially loves to tell old stories – myths and folktales that used to exist in an oral culture. As a coffee professional and devotee for 10 years, she is working towards opening a coffee shop that will feature regular storytelling events.
