Tellers Needed for P.J. Stories

P.J. Stories is a monthly, family friendly venue. Our goal is to promote storytelling for young audiences and to grow young storytelling audiences. Each month (the fourth Monday, 6:30-7:30pm) we feature a storyteller.

If you would like to tell stories at P.J. Stories, please contact Pam Schweitzer at

This is not a paid venue, but it is a great place to practice program material and get your name out there. Several tellers have been hired for other programs after performing at P.J. Stories.

What is P.J. Stories? Some people may confuse P.J. Stories with a peanut butter sandwich because even between stories we squish a lot of fun. Each month we invite a local storyteller to tell some of their favorite stories. We have been fortunate to hear stories from all over the world by storytellers with very different backgrounds and styles. Some tellers use props or even puppets. We even had Santa stop by a few times to tell us about his adventures at the North Pole. Storytellers change, stories change, and styles vary, but one thing always stays the same: P.J. Stories is always fun!
