A gift to the community from the church and the guild, “Warm Stories” will feature several talented tellers.
Joyce Vanderpool will emcee the program which promises a variety of stories to amuse and entertain. From Sylvia Idom’s version of a Cherokee folktale to Judy Baker’s hilarious account of her mother’s adventures with a warm morning stove, listeners will learn and laugh.
Rick Love’s “Black Jack” describes a bothersome bull and asks the question “What would a cowboy do?” Owen Duncan will share memories from his poetry collection “From the Country,” works that warm through nostalgia and sentiment.
Finn Bille, a Chattanooga teller who was recently featured at the Carter Center in Atlanta, will share a story about his family’s emigration from Denmark to the United States.
Pete Vanderpool, a favorite local Santa Claus, will bring Clevelanders some perspective on our recent snowfalls.
Steve Daugherty is one of the newest members of the Cleveland Storytelling Guild and will tell about an unusual, “out of this world” soccer team of 4- and 5-year-olds.
Deborah Holland, guild secretary, says, “I’ve heard all these stories in rehearsal and am very excited about this year’s “Warm Stories and Hot Cider.”
