Curriculum:

Yvonne Healy is a Born Storyteller!

She didn't kiss the Blarney Stone; she swallowed it. This award-winning raconteur was born across the water. She grew up with Irish stories and language on an American Main Street. Rollicking kids' tales, weird Celtic legends, outrageous family lore, or thought-provoking adult fare: whether it's blarney or beyond, this American and Irish storyteller opens windows to life, as real and touching as it gets. Funny, too!

Dynamic Storyteller:

Interactive and humorous, Yvonne's storytelling with children and families highlights participatory tales and drumming from world cultures. Teen, adult and college audiences savor personal narrative, chilling and romantic ghost stories, and heartwarming entertainment.

Talented Writer:

Healy writes all of the stories she performs. Some are her parents' bedtime tales archived by the Irish Folklore Commission. Others are adapted from multicultural folklore and history. Still more are personal narratives reflective of her culture which she calls 'Malls & Malarkey'. Yvonne publishes in European and American magazines, books, compact discs and DVDs.

Gifted Educator:

Healy's innovative school presentations address curriculum content expectations and standards-based education for ages 4-18. Adult and college instruction cover storytelling, performance skills and the application of storytelling to writing, education and professional development.
