Susan Danoff has spent the past forty years in the unlikely profession of storytelling, performing and offering workshops from Trenton to Beijing, with students ranging from Head Start to college, and in classrooms from Princeton to prison.  She has used storytelling to teach writing, thinking, and creativity and to build community among diverse populations.  For twelve years, Susan served as the founding director of a New Jersey nonprofit corporation that brought long-term storytelling programs to about sixteen thousand low-income and special needs students to support literacy and learning. At Princeton, Susan has offered workshops and performances for the art museum, the Office of Information Technology, and the Cotsen Children’s Library. Susan is author of the book “The Golden Thread:  Storytelling in Teaching and Learning” and three audio recordings. Her CD “Women of Vision” was a winner of the Parents’ Choice Gold award.
