Renowned storyteller and wildlife educator Susi Wolf will bring her unique talents to Roswell on Oct. 1.

Her program, titled “Storytelling: Animal Tales and the Lessons They Teach Us,” will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Oct. 1 at the Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico’s Archive Building, 208 N. Lea Ave.

The free program will include discussion and understanding of animals tales within various cultures, the benefits of storytelling as it relates to the humanities, the importance and purpose of animal tales, sharing cherokee heritage, drumming/singing and listening to stories with various animal characters.

The last time Wolf was in Roswell, she put on a fascinating performance as Diamond Bessie, a prostitute whose murder in the woods outside of Jefferson, Texas, in 1877 propelled her to the level of local legend.

With an emphasis on education, Wolf performs in schools, libraries, museums and bookstores, always using storytelling as the catalyst to spark children’s interest in literacy and learning. Studies have proven how storytelling stimulates the brain for better comprehension and attention-span.

Wolf has a zoological background (she continues to teach in zoos and also did chimpanzee behavior studies for Jane Goodall a few years back). She easily combines storytelling with animal biofacts for a highly educational and enjoyable audience experience.

The Sunday program is kid friendly and attendees are encouraged to bring their children and grandchildren to the event as Wolf shares animal folktales from the Southwest and around the world.
