Description

A nationally recognized and award-winning fourth-generation storyteller, author and educator, Lyn Ford shares folktale adaptations, spooky tales, and original stories rooted in her family’s multicultural African American heritage. Ford’s “Home-Fried Tales” are seasoned with rhythm, rhyme, audience interaction, humor, and heart.

She is an Ohio teaching artist in a state-based collaborative initiative of the Kennedy Center for the Arts, a story artist with the Greater Columbus Arts Council and a Thurber House mentor for young authors. A recording artist with award-winning recordings, Ford is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award.

“An exceptional artist.” – Jim Arter, Greater Columbus Arts Council
