Are your ears burning? I'm at the FL StoryFest & in a workshop today your book was touted today as having "saved her bacon" by 1 of our featured tellers, Geraldine Buckley, talking about having to throw out the planned curriculum she had for a 4th grade. Your book save the day for her.
We also "let the cat out of the bag" about how much we're looking forward to you at this summer's NSN Y.E.S! preconference. Our chair, Jane Stenson, has been raving about you.
Buy this book, folks, and come see him this summer in VA.
I loved your book and that was a fun interview. Let everyone know I am featuring it on my page. Thanks for breaking the ice on my new show Storytellers Talk Story. I hope other storytellers will decide to be on my show. Julia
I just want to say how delighted I was to hear you at the LA Festival. I returned thee after Christmas to see my folks (remember the potluck when you landed?)...dined with Ann Buxie, one of the LA Board Members, who thought the final concert was just spectacular! She said,"that was as good as any concert I've seen anywhere"... yep.
Hi, Anthony. Yeah, I was wondering about the hat, but then I forgot about it - a great sign for a storyteller! I had a great time and I really enjoyed myself in Norfolk, and it was great to have a new person enter into the storytelling world. Vicki, my friend, really liked it. Thanks again. Peace and belief,
Oh, by the way, did you get the information about Andy Offutt Irwin? Let me know if you didn't.
Hi, Anthony. Thanks for the welcome. I presently have nothing on my schedule for Sept. 10 so I will look to come to Weavers of the Word. I have the location, but didn't see the time - so what time is it? How long is it? What is the membership costs? Thanks for the info. Peace and belief,
Thanks for the tip about the new center opening in Virginia, I will definitely check into it! Since we're sorta in the same area, for the moment, maybe I'll get a chance to run into you. Are you coming up to check out the storytelling at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival? I plan to go tomorrow and a few other days if I can make it.
Thanks for the welcome, Anthony. Yes, I do remember you and First Night Williamsburg. I'll be in New York the week of September 19th, telling at the Hans Christian Andersen statue in Central Park for starters.
Hi Anthony, Great to meet you! I'm sorry, but I won't be able to attend the Sounds of the Mountains. It pains me, but I had a previous engagement that I just couldn't skip out on. However, next year, I'll be there.
Are you going to be at the JuneBug festival? I'm trying to get in as a Teller for that one.
I do know Kim, she's actually a huge reason that I've decided to get into storytelling. I just can't say enough about how inspirational she is - funny too.
Anthony, I really enjoyed talking "process" with you and Judith and Les on Tuesday. I finished a written first draft of the story I was telling you all about over the weekend and will try it out on my friend Noa over the phone today. I know it will change once I'm telling it. So interesting to see the difference, at least for me, between my "written voice" and my "telling voice".
Hi Anthony, Have you heard about the Saturday Series of workshops that are sponsored by VASA? The first one will be on Sat. Dec. 6 in Abingdon, VA at the Virginia Highlands Community College, 9:30 a.m. Two workshops will be presented, GROW with Kim Weitkamp on marketing and DIG IT with Paul Conco on developing the oral history. Lunch is included in the price of $75 for VASA members and will be followed by coaching, story labs, and story swaps. Contact me for more info if you're interested in coming. Mimi
Hey Anthony, I haven't been on this site for some time, so I missed this message until tonight; I apologize. I will add you to the BCS e-mail list, but I want to tell you about an event to be held this Sat. Sept. 27. At 7:30 pm BCS will be presenting our 11th annual "Graveyard Tales" at the Weaver-Union church pavilion very near a historic cemetery. Address is 132 Peoples Road (corner of Weaver Pike and Peoples Road) The church faces Peoples Road and the Weaver Elementary School faces Weaver Pike. Lots of parking in the lot shared by the church and school. Adults: $6; Students: $4. Unfortunately, I won't be there. I'm leaving Thursday for Des Moines, Iowa to help my uncle celebrate his 100th birthday! A big day! I'll keep you posted on other events coming up. Mimi
Hello. I'm new on this site, and browsing the Members, I remembered you from the VASA Gathering. The only story I heard you tell was the Tower of Babel story which was just excellent! I didn't get much of a chance to chat with you there, so maybe we will here. Will you be my friend? Mimi Rockwell
