Bill Gordh

Bill Gordh is the author of The Seven Towers of Wonder, an ambitious project to collect and retell folktales from around the world, published by Thornwillow Press. The series follows the characters Raccoon and Possum as they search for seven stories that exemplify each of their seven themes. The tales of the Seven Towers are built on moral themes that prove to be universal regardless of country, language, or time period. The first four volumes, Courage, Hope, Justice, and Faith are available now, with the Tower of Wisdom being the upcoming fifth volume in the planned seven-book series.

Bill Gordh, a modern day Renaissance man of the arts and children’s education, is one man with many voices. While Gordh has worked with Thornwillow primarily as an author, he is also an “award-winning banjo-playing storyteller,” and a specialist in early childhood and elementary literacy whose expertise has made him an established consultant and educator. He has been the Director of Expressive Arts at The Episcopal School of NYC for more than twenty years, and served as an Adjunct professor, curriculum designer, workshop leader, and lecturer for programs ranging from film, art, and music, to theology seminaries.

As a musician and composer, Gordh has written dozens of songs, some as stand-alone pieces, and some designed to be sung within stories. Most recently he has worked with the New York Philharmonic as a performer, narrator, and librettist. He has been a featured storyteller and performer at such venues as The Easter Egg Roll at the White House, The Tribeca Film Festival, The Museum of American Folk Art, and The American Museum of Natural History.


Storytelling is at the heart of all of Bill Gordh’s work. In all of his varied experiences and careers, his dedication to storytelling as a means of enriching the lives and education of children is a constant.
