My First Storytelling—Thursday March 16 at Stagebridge

LUNCHTIME STORYTELLING TOMORROW!

Learning how to tell stories is an ancient craft, difficult to master.

I’ve been very excited for the past year to learn oral storytelling—not reading my written stories, not memorizing lines, but knowing a story, absorbing it, then telling it in my own words, without script or notes.

It’s kind of a verbal jazz, different every time, and more challenging than I could have imagined.

Come hear my first “telling” outside of class (along with fellow student Eleanor Clement Glass). Some of the stories will be funny, some poignant, all heartfelt.

It takes place tomorrow, Thursday March 16 at noon at Stagebridge, at the First Congregational Church, 2501 Harrison Street, Oakland CA 94612. It’s in the Basement Room, which can be accessed directly from the sidewalk on Harrison Street. Plan to come early, as parking can be difficult in the neighborhood. Fun guaranteed!

And best of all, it’s FREE!
