June Mc Abee


June McAbee, affectionately known as Nanna, is a storyteller extraordinaire. She has been weaving her blend of folk tales ever since 1966 when she began teaching in the Montgomery County Public School System.

After retiring from teaching in 1995, Nanna went full-time into her trade. In addition to being a very creative educator, she acquired professional training in storytelling from her memberships in the National Association of Storytellers, the Griot Circle of Maryland and the National Association of Black Storytellers. These experiences have allowed Nanna to work in a variety of venues.

Nanna's repertoire includes Fractured Fairy Tales, Stories from Around the World, and the celebration of African-American History. Traditional favorites such as Anansi the Spider, the use of hand and stringed puppets, and the inclusion of non-conventional instruments renders Nanna's performances suitable for all age groups, including special needs children.

So, if you are looking for someone to entertain, educate, enlighten and enthrall your guests at your next public or private event, why not give Nanna a call. Her motto is "Have story, will travel".
