Q: What exactly is #Storytime?

There is a story the bees used to tell, which makes it hard to disbelieve….
Joanne Harris is the internationally acclaimed author. She is active on social media, where her live storytelling has become a popular phenomenon. From these stories, written from scratch in front of a Twitter audience, and sent out into the Twittersphere in segments of 140 characters, a whole book of stories has emerged – thought-provoking, funny, sad and completely original.
A live storytelling show featuring tales from the book, along with projections, original music and songs, written and performed by Joanne and the band of which she has been a member since she was at school. This show has expanded since
then to include longer pieces inspired by Joanne’s novellas, A POCKETFUL OF CROWS, THE BLUE SALT ROAD and ORFEIA, and is intimate, engaging, quirky and darkly magical, appealing to audiences of all ages, but especially lovers of
folklore, fantasy and fairytale.
