new-for our time. It is an extremely compelling, rich story in very “oral form”
I had always enjoyed storytelling but did not venture into performance storytelling until the mid 1980’s. I was invited to hear a friend perform at Seward Café in Minneapolis. I was hooked and began attending storytelling groups and workshops and classes at the Guthrie. I had begun telling the gospel text when I was lectionary at my church and was on a dual path of traditional storytelling and Biblical storytelling and got involved with Northlands Storytelling Network and the Network of Biblical
Door County Historical stories. I received the Lucy Beck Award from the Wisconsin Storytellers in recognition of that work. In 2000 I moved to Venice Florida and continued storytelling, and running storytelling and folk festival events. Besides performing in a variety of settings and genre, I was active in the Florida Storytelling Association and began attending the Network of Biblical Storytellers .
Currently much of my time is taken up with the Adult Loss of Hearing Association-ALOHA. I have served as President of the Board for the past four years.
