A Time For Tales

Program #422 (November 29 at 3:00 p.m.)

Although he showed an early love of baseball (and wanted to become second baseman for the Cincinnati Reds), Bill Harley began singing and storytelling in 1975, while still in college.

The son of a children’s writer and a law book editor, Bill is a dedicated author, winning the hearts of thousands of young readers and numerous awards with his picture books and novels.

A two-time Grammy winner, he is vibrant, outrageous, unpredictable and genuine with songs and stories about growing up, schooling and what it is to be human—our connections with one another and with the planet we share.

Best known for his work with children and families, his ability to navigate through a confusing world with humor and wisdom is evident in his masterful storytelling, singing, recordings and books. Bill is recognized by audiences and peers as one of the finest performing storytellers in the country, his work has influenced a generation of children, parents, performing artists and educators.
