San Diego Art Institute says
San Diego Art Institute is delighted to collaborate with Write Out Loud; an organization founded in 2007 with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading short stories aloud for a live audience. Join us for a screening of The Witches at noon and perform a community read of The Twits at 3pm. Readers of all levels are welcome. Sign up begins at 1:30.

This event is part of a park-wide celebration honoring the centenary of the birth of Roald Dahl, the world’s number one storyteller. Collaborating partners include House of England, Japanese Friendship Garden, Mingei International Museum, Museum of Photographic Arts, Save Starlight and Spreckels Organ Society. The day’s film screenings, Roald Dahl inspired art workshops, story readings and more are all appropriate for the whole family. All events, unless otherwise noted, are free. The full day’s events will take place from 10am-5pm.

As a part of their StoryBox Theatre Program, Write Out Loud has commissioned local artists to create StoryBox designs for the re-telling of two of Roald Dahl’s stories. Storybox is the American name given to the Japanese storytelling tradition called kamishibai, in which the reader completely engages the audience by revealing a series of illustrations while narrating a story. Samantha Jean Wilson is creating the artwork for The Enormous Crocodile and Deborah and Larry Kline are creating images for The Magic Finger. Both Roald Dahl stories will be presented at various locations throughout the day in Balboa Park, as well as in libraries across the County through the month of September and beyond.
