Telling Stories

Storyteller Jim Weiss

Storyteller Jim Weiss keeps his audiences attentive, involved and thinking during his telling of classics, myths and traditional tales.

Warren Elementary School invited Jim for a week long session of storytelling and story workshops and we were fortunate to have him make West Hill House B&B as his home-away-from-home.

Susan was lucky enough to be able to attend his final performance at the school – an evening for children to bring their parents along to hear their favorite storyteller. “The Crow and the Pitcher“, “Hercules”, and the “Baker and the Beggar” were given new life through Jim’s delivery.

We also had our own opportunity to talk to Jim about his profession and his travels over dinner at West HIll House one evening. Just another example of what makes West Hill House such an interesting place – a big part of it is all the fascinating people who visit!
