Preview: Grandparents find tools to build, deepen connection to kin


Eliza Ridgeway/Town Crier
Los Altos resident Enid Davis honed her storytelling skills as a children’s librarian and a grandmother. She teaches local seniors to confidently share beloved stories, with a minimum of memorization required.

The elder storyteller has an image - village rememberer, family entertainer, perhaps even the picture book "quiet old lady, whispering, Hush." The idea of storytelling is simple - sharing a narrative without the benefit of notes.

But tale-tellers are often made, not born. Los Altos resident Enid Davis has been teaching local seniors how to become a storyteller for one’s own grandchildren.

The Town Crier publishes six different glossy magazines that are inserted into the regular paper. The issue hitting newsstands and mailboxes May 24 will include the Senior Lifestyles magazine, with stories and updates from our community's senior residents. If you're not already a subscriber and would like to read the full story on local tale tellers and how to find your own story style later this month, subscribe now by calling 948-9000 or visit https://www.losaltosonline.com/subscriptions.
