African Storytelling Reimagined sessions at Nordstroms in Tysons corner on November 19. 

My name is Ada-Ari and I was inspired by my children to become a children's author. A Nigerian immigrant, I wanted them to enjoy the stories that I grew up on, so my books are retellings of some of the most cherished African folktales that have been passed down orally for generations and lost to centuries of migration.  

 

I am touring the country with Nordstrom and I would love to invite you to attend this reading and also drive awareness of my initiative.  Since I launched, I have had and had an amazing time presenting my program around the country. In addition to reading, my sessions include geography and cultural lessons, African dance, and touch/feel interactions with authentic African artifacts. I have been featured on numerous media outlets such as Fox5 and WPGC 95.5. 

 

We are living in a time where diversity is so encouraged and celebrated and I know that you would love not just the story behind my books, but the geography and culture inserts included. Storytelling is a way that African elders share moral lessons with young children, and it is a treat being able to share this bit of our culture to new audiences. Please check out this brief YouTube Video showcasing my book and its features and let me know your thoughts.
