2009 Update: Smoky Mountain Storytelling Festival and NYSS were great.
Emilee Seaman is now National Torchbearer High School division of NYSS.
She did a wonderful job with her own story Hidden Keys and her best performance ever on June 6th.
Andy Offutt Irwin, Lloyd Arneach, Doug Elliott and Donald Davis were just a
few of the awesome performers that wonderful first weekend in June when
I turned 56.
Followed that with a week of work at Green River Correctional Complex, medium security male prison, where I am the librarian.
Then went to Washington DC for the 100th Special Libraries Association conference.
Another inspiring and marvelous event. Colin Powell as the keynote speaker; Library of Congress as the capstone! What a June!
