Erin P. Kourelis, MA TESL/TEFL
President, Vancouver Society of World Folklore
Erin became interested in folklore through the bizarre creatures he found in the folklore of Japan. When he went to Ireland and Scotland, he found himself in love with folklore there as well. After returning to Canada, he decided to create the Vancouver Society of World Folklore to find others who are interested in the investigation and preservation of folklore, and sketching those stories.
Tracy likes the back story and sometimes twisted or even sinister plots of folktales. She fell in love with the Character Saci Perere at the museum of Afro Brazil in Sao Paulo. She finds meeting with the group for a show and sketch to be an enjoyable diversion as well as another fantastic reason to visit libraries
