The event is open to the public and will take place at 7 p.m. in Philips Hall at the Performing Arts Center.
Lloyd tours the U.S. performing stories from a variety of sources, including traditional world folktales, children’s literature and original works. Her performances are a whimsical blend of poetry, story and song played on autoharp, tenor guitar, spoon, washboard and bell.

The workshop will be held in Room 213 of the Cotchett Education Center (Building 2) from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Reservations for that event are required, and space is limited to 40 teachers. Interested teachers can sign up for a seat by e-mailing Maureen Rosenberg in the Liberal Studies Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservation deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9.
