Once upon a time long ago, retired librarian Jean Pouncil Burton became a storyteller. Parents and teachers bought their children into the library to a story time program.  The children listened, laughed, and clapped, and she was hooked!  It was not long before she was invited to tell stories, in schools, churches, community organizations, etc…  Therefore, she set out to learn as much as she could about the art of storytelling.  She took some additional classes, attended workshops, conferences, festivals and one-on-one coaching sessions. Eleven years ago, she discovered others with a common interest in the art, and The Wichita Griots:  Keepers of the Stories was born!
