Whether it is with a thoughtful story for adults, a funny folk tale for children, or the inspiring history of her Japanese American family’s experience in the incarceration camps during World War II, Anne Shimojima reminds us that to be human is to travel on the most fascinating journey of all. Her repertoire includes folk tales from around the world and historical pieces that help us find our place in the world today.

A professional storyteller since 1982, Anne performs in festivals, schools, libraries, museums, senior communities, conferences, and anywhere people gather to hear a good story. Her thirty-five years as an elementary school library media specialist and decades of performing have given her a deep understanding of the universal truths we can all find in story.
