New and expanded for The Ark's 36th Annual Storytelling Festival! This festival now includes three days of events! Friday includes a LIAR's CONTEST, Saturday is the BIG SHOW with me, Sheila Arnold and Bill Harley. Sheila and Bill are also doing a Sunday matinee show for kids.
Although this event occurred on July 2021, IT CAN BE VIEWED ONLINE ON A PAY-PER-VIEW BASIS. This fun and informative workshop explores ways to create and use humor in your stories. Every story, even very serious and difficuly personal stories, can benefit from humor. Humor in serious stories can give your audience a little break, and in difficult personal stories, humor can let your listeners know that you are "ok", and have some perspective on the experience. The workshop is produced by Story Crossroads, and in it I use examples, exercises and discussion to help you enhance your stories with a bit'o humor.
STILL AVAILABLE ONLINE. This video of me performing "The Farmer's Fun-Loving Daughter" was commissioned by the Kzoo Valley Museum.
This in-depth look at Mark Twain's Life and stories will consist of two two-hour sessions, one week apart on October 18 and 25. We'll follow his early development as a printer's devil, a river boat pilot, a gold and silver miner, and a newspaper man. We will watch his rise to national and international fame, and the toll it took on his family life. We'll also look at his inventions and investments, some of which were ill-advised, and some that in hindsight look, well, just ridiculous! And we'll hear some stories, set into the context of his life developments. Come and experience the life of this Classic American Icon.
The program will be presented through the Adult Learners Institute (ALI)
"The two most important days in the life of any man are the day he was born and the day he understands why." - Mark Twain
