Mark Binder’s Awesome Stories for All Ages

Festivals and World Tour

Festivals and World Tour

Award-winning author and storyteller Mark Binder will be performing at camps, libraries, schools and festivals all around New England.

“People love hearing stories. They are an amazing way to connect diverse listeners,” Binder said. “Parents and children are transported together on vivid and humorous adventures.”

If you’ve never seen Mark Binder perform his stories, you’re missing something special. From the moment he begins, he captures the attention of listeners of all ages, and brings smiles and laughter to their faces.

The author of more than 20 books and audio books, Mark Binder’s stories have entertained and educated more than 200,000 listeners and readers around the world. His hour-long live events include modern updates of classic stories, like Jack and the Beanstalk or Cinderella Spinderella, original folk tales, and autobiographical tall tales.

“We start with a familiar story that varies depending on the age range of the audience,” Binder said. “From there we can travel to Africa, a candy store, or a wizard’s house. And of course, everyone loves the story of how a giant slug ate my sister.”

Mark’s NEW audiobook for early learners and up

This fall, Mark Binder is releasing”Transmit Joy!” his seventh audio storybook. The collection of ten stories begins with “The Billy Goats Gruff” and includes stories about cavemen, cavities, bad manners and wolves. Some parents like to put the 65 minute CD or MP3 on in the car for long and short rides. Others let their children listen on their own, or together,”

Mark Binder stories are our favorite,” said parent and fan Brooke Stanton. “It’s a great way to end the day. Snuggle up with the light off and listen to tales whilst letting your imagination run wild, creating your very own imagery.

The Transmit Joy Audio Storybook is available in prerelease at transmitjoy.com and will be available in September on Amazon, iTunes and GooglePlay, along with all of Mark Binder’s other books and audio books.
