Celtic storyteller Fiona PowellCeltic storyteller Fiona Powell will present a story hour Saturday, Dec. 6, at 11 a.m. in the Stadler Center for Poetry, Bucknell Hall, at Bucknell University.

The annual event is free and open to the public as part of the Stadler Center Children's Series. It is intended for children ages 4 to 11.

The story hour will be followed by a cookie-decorating session, with all necessities provided to attendees.

A professional storyteller, Powell is a collector of international folklore, particularly Celtic tales and speechways. The daughter of a Welsh-American lawyer and a British actress, she has lived in such wide-ranging locales as Japan, France and Great Britain. For a time, she worked as a shepherd in Somerset, Wales and Scotland. She returns to the British Isles every year, spending most of her time in Wales, where she studies the folkways of her ancestors.

In addition to appearing at schools, festivals, and other events as a storyteller and performer, Powell is an announcer for WVIA, northeastern Pennsylvania's public radio affiliate.
