Storyteller Bill Harley

Jun 4, 2012

Tuesday, Grammy-winning storyteller and musician Bill Harley is in studio. Harley specializes in "growing up stories," but he doesn't aim to tell kids what to do. He's more interested in describing the experiences and feelings of childhood. He says his job is to make kids laugh, but you'll often find his whole audience in stitches. Harley is in Utah as a guest of Writers@Work, and he joins Doug to talk about his craft and to remind us what the world looks like from a child's perspective.

Writers@Work will host "An Evening with Bill Harley," Tuesday, June 5th, 7:00 p.m. at the Masonic Temple in Salt Lake City. Tickets are $20 and support the W@W scholarship program. It's part of the annual Writers@Work conference, being held June 6 - 10. For tickets and more information, visit Writers@Work.
