Upcoming Storytelling Events

I have three storytelling events coming up, so it is shameless self-promotion time! All of these are virtual (well, one is in person, but also being streamed) so you can watch from anywhere.


The first show is part of the National Storytelling Network annual conference. It’s on Thursday July 22nd (eek,a week away) at 3:30 p.m. CDT (because NSN operates on Central Time). The show is titled Okay, Boomer: Stories Across Generations and I am telling a story that has to do with dress codes and broader values. Don’t worry - it should be funny! And, if you hate it, there are 5 other tellers. Tickets are available at the conference website.


The second show is going to be live streamed from The Auld Shebeen in Fairfax, Virginia on July 31 at 7:00 p.m. EDT. I am over the moon about performing in front of a live audience again. Anyway, here’s the info:

For what it’s worth, my story involves a converted school bus,skinny-dipping Deadheads, members of a pseudo-Buddhist sex cult, and whether I should have wondered why the cross-country tour was so cheap.


Finally, Voices in the Glen is doing a virtual midsummer storytelling program of folk and faerie tales on August 7 at 8 p.m. EDT. I’ll be telling a folktale from Nigeria. Tickets (which are free) are available at event combo
