The enchantment of New Jersey’s Pine Barrens springs from stories of many cultures that have grown through time. Storyteller, writer and performer Michelle Washington Wilson spins mesmerizing tales during “Legends and Lore Kept Alive in the Jersey Pines” at the Ocean County Library Waretown Branch, 6 PM Monday, July 15.

Settlers and migrants in the region’s farms, fields and factories brought their cultures and traditions to fantastic yarns of strange occurrences and ghostly characters unique to the Pinelands. Michelle Washington Wilson’s vivid interpretations will intrigue and inspire you in this family-oriented presentation for everyone age 10 and up.

Now in her fourth decade as a Motivational Storyteller, Michelle Washington Wilson is an active member of the New Jersey Storytelling Network (NJSN) and the National Association of Black Storytellers (NABS).

In 2023, the Newtonville native and Monmouth University alumna was named one of four prominent “Women Who Tell Our Stories” by the Atlantic County Advisory Commission on Women. She is featured in Legendary Locals of the Pine Barrens of New Jersey and Small Towns, Black Lives, available at the Ocean County Library.
