In celebration of Reading Week, Trinity Lutheran School in Lombard will bring literature to life for area families at a free Storytelling Open House on Thursday, February 20, 2014. Through the art of storyteller Chris Fascione, the “man of 100 voices,” as Trinity teacher Sue Niehaus has labeled him, attendees will be treated to the best of classical and contemporary children's literature and folktales in a fun-filled, participatory show. The Storytelling Open House gets underway at 6:30 p.m., but doors will open earlier, at 5:45 p.m., for a free dinner preceding the fun.

Trinity Lutheran School, on the northeast corner of Roosevelt and Meyers, welcomes children and adults alike to visit the 153-year old Christian school for this special opportunity to be entertained in a low-tech, high-impact way. Trinity’s principal, Kenn Krohse, encourages all ages to come enjoy Fascione. “Chris is a gifted story teller who holds your attention during his performance and makes you want to read a book when he is finished." Niehaus adds that the program is “fast paced and engaging…He has a unique ability to hold one’s attention."

The event is free, as is the dinner, but reservations are requested for the meal at 630.627.5601. Trinity is located at 1165 South Westmore-Meyers Road in Lombard and provides faith-based Christian education for children from age three through 8th grade. Visit www.TrinityLombard.org.
