In this space I hope to continue to build community through the art of storytelling, share my rants and ramblings, as well as document some of my stories and programs.

Great Kids Book
I just finished reading Autumn Winifred Oliver Does Things Different by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb and I loved it. It is a great story of how the Great Smoky Mountains National Park came to be. It is a work of fiction, I would say for kids 4th grade and up. The main character is quite a spunky young lady who has many adventures that leave you laughing out loud.
It just goes to show you how a visit to a national park can plant the seed of story, which may grow into to something beautiful.
I am a librarian, storyteller, and Mom who is interested in using story to build community. My storytelling interest range from running after school programs, working with seniors in the community to tell their own stories, to telling folk tales, spooky stories and original creations.
