Story Time at Village Toastmasters
Village Toastmasters will host a special Story Time meeting on Thursday, January 19 at 7:00 pm.
At regular meetings, Toastmasters present speeches that they have researched and developed themselves. In contrast, at this special Story Time event, speakers will read from a book, article, poem, or other written work.
Interpretive reading projects like this represent a unique speaking challenge – communicate the ideas and emotions of someone else. Interpretive readers have to pay special attention to their pauses, vocal tone, body movement and even eye contact with the audience to make sure the attitude and intent of the author is conveyed.
It is a skill that people use more often than typically thought. Anytime a quote, statistics or figures are used in a presentation, interpretive reading skills are necessary.
Visitors are welcome to come and watch experienced Toastmasters read from motivational texts, their own books, and quotable quotes during this special event.
