Carrie Sue Ayvar

Flowing seamlessly between Spanish and English, Carrie Sue Ayvar chooses from her large repertoire to connect people, languages, and cultures through her stories. She believes folktales can be windows into each community, often dealing with universal problems and ideas but tinted with their own cultural viewpoint. Stories are the threads woven into the tapestry of time, and Carrie Sue seamlessly weaves together personal and traditional tales in this program.

An internationally celebrated storyteller, Carrie Sue Ayvar has been connecting people, languages, cultures, and curriculums in both English and Spanish for over forty years. As an award-winning storyteller, Chautauqua scholar, and a national credentialed teaching artist, she has performed in diverse venues across the country and internationally.  An advocate for the art of storytelling and arts education, she believes that, like her Grandpa Nat taught her, “If you don’t know the trees you may be lost in the forest, but if you don’t know the stories you may be lost in life.”
