New places to see storytelling

This coming weekend there is a new venue for storytelling in the White Mountains.  If you want to get away for a weekend and listen to stories then this is for you!  There will be about 16 storytellers there performing in three separate venues which allows anyone to find something they will like.  There is a place for adult tales, family tales and tales for young children!  And at $20 for an adult and special family rates for the whole weekend, along with discounted rooms available at the Snowy Owl Inn, this event at Waterville, NH, in the heart of the White Mountains is going to be great and affordable!  For more details please go to: http://www.nhstorytelling.com/ Oh, and I will be performing Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon!

It has been a great summer!  I have been kept busy, and yet had plenty of time to spend with my kids.  I have been working on new stories and have a new CD plan in the works of my mind.  I know this is very soon after the release of a brand new CD this spring, but this one will have VERY limited availability.  It will be a short run and will not be re-released.  As some of my readers will know, I tell stories once a year at CAMP Exclamation Point.  This is a place for very under privileged kids and so I want to make a CD for these young people.  The CD will be a gift to them next summer.  Even with a short run, I am not in a position to fund this myself, so I will be setting up a Kickstarter funding project to pay for it.  The ONLY way you will be able to get this new CD will be to help fund this project - unless you are a child going to CAMP Exclamation Point in 2012!  And the only way I can make this project work is with your help. Visit Kickstarter to see how it works and Keep Your Eyes Posted Here for more information later this fall.

Lastly, I wanted to say a huge thank you to the Friends of the Library groups, to libraries, towns, individuals and organizations who have invited me to your community.  Without folks like you I would not be doing this wonderful work I am so fortunate to be able to do.

Enjoy the fall weather - what?  It is going to get to 75 degrees again today?  Well, enjoy the apples, the cider, and the wonderful colours which are now starting to come in.

And don't forget to keep in touch.

We also are having a heat wave in sunny South Wales, my thermometer in the garden said 35C but idont think so but it was hot. We are all well here, Jes has started a new job with a haulage company and enjoying it. Their wagons arent as big as you Yanks have them even though they transport steel. Dad
