Invite Mark to Share Stories

This year, woven within all programs are the themes of Hope,  Laughter, Joy and Adventure…


Mark Binder offers author visits, storytelling programs and school assemblies for Early Learning, K-3, 4-6 and middle school audiences, all with compelling age-appropriate stories.  Click here for more info on school programs.


Mark's "Write It, Then Right It" writing residencies teach creativity, story structure and revision.  They are designed for grades 3-5,  middle and high school, university and adults. 


Whether there's a campfire or not, Mark's stories for summer are awesomely fun ways to engage campers. An "old school" activity but with modern and age-appropriate sensibilities.


As an author who tells stories, Mark's programs in libraries engage both the reader and the listener. Summer reading programs often follow the annual theme.  Programs are tailored to family or adult audiences. (Ages 3-103).


Storytelling brings diverse communities together. Mark's stories delight adults and families, warm the heart, and leave smiles behind. 


Mark has traveled the world sharing stories with adults, families and children of all ages. He has performed all over the USA, in Paris and Vienna, at the Sneem Storytelling Festival (Ireland), Mezrab (Amsterdam), Jewish Book Week (London), Sharing the Fire (Boston), L.A.U.G.H.S (Virginia) and more.

Shows • Themes • Stories

Mark has more than 150 stories in his repertoire as a performer. And he's always developing more.

While much of storytelling bridges communities and ages, some stories are for adults and some for young people.
We've arranged them by columns, but there's a lot of crossover.

In other words, if you don't see something you want… ask!
