|Eric James Wolf was born three minutes after the taxi arrived at a New York City hospital on January 20th, 1970. He has attended numerous educational institutions, both public and private, graduating with a BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic for which his senior project was storytelling. His experience has included an apprenticeship with a professional storyteller. He completed an M.S. in Environmental Education from Lesley University – sister school to Harvard.|
He has been telling stories since 1993 for compensation – but his first public performance was at the age of 8 when his sister told her teacher that he was a good storyteller. The kindergarten teacher proceeded to nod knowingly and invited him to tell a story to her class. Little did she know – 20 minutes later, with the lights turned low, Eric finished telling, “The Old Man in the Shack.” Then the fifteen parents lined up out side were finally able to pick up their children.
Brother Wolf tells multiple genres: modern fairy tales, morality tales, peace stories, historical characterizations and personal tall tales. These stories all have one common theme to them – they teach children to have a magical, mystical and imaginative world view. If you know of some children who need a little re-imagining, please let him know.
He travels world-wide. If you are interested in learning more about his storytelling voice and work, check out one of the pages listed on the bottom of the page or in the middle of the page on the right.
