The author of 50-plus books on folklore and storytelling topics, MacDonald tours internationally, offering workshops and performances for schools, libraries, and festivals. Her latest book, based on a workshop offered at the 2004 conference of the National Storytelling Network held in Bellingham, Washington, explores four basic techniques for bilingual telling: line-by-line translation, tandem telling, summarizing, and bilingual telling by one speaker. Other topics covered include the translator's role, using story in language instruction, presenting tellers of other languages, presenting workshops abroad, translation into a signed language, and cultural considerations. The text includes contributions from 38 international professional storytellers, educators, and performers. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
