Travelin' to Tell! JUNE!
If you enjoyed the May 28, 4 PM Blues Vespers with Bluesman Charles Sealy, Storyteller Lyn Ford, and Father John Kovitch, at Java Central Cafe, 20 South State Street, Westerville OH 43081, go Java Central, grab a cup of coffee, thank the folks there, and let others know about the cafe's storytelling events. Your word-of-mouth support of storytelling is essential! Storytelling is for EVERYONE!
I'm at so many libraries this month and next, I keep forgetting some of them. Somebody asks, "Where will you be telling this summer?" I reply, "Uh..." Please go to my Events page for more information. Hopefully, I have listed all free library events, or contacts for calendar information, on that page! If not,...uh...
Also, I'll share some laughter exercises for pre-and- post-storytelling relaxation, with those who, like me, are introverts in an extroverted career, and others who just want to have some fun. Come to the National Storytelling Network's annual conference; this year, it's again centrally (for the USA) located in Kansas City MO, and my workshop (think: playshop) is on Friday, June 30th. For more info on the June 28th (a preconference day) to July 2nd conference events, go to:
