Subject: RE: Story selection - storytelling to adults
As mentioned, the same story can range from 10 minutes to 45 minutes. Once I was telling Moby Dick to a senior citizen's group and we got diverted into a discussion of a boat which one of them had owned. We eventually got back on track. After the session, one of the staff said, "I never knew those things about our resident." You never know what will come out of a session but you have to allow it to flow.
