It's been a strange year and I'm sure we're all glad to see spring with the new flowers and green trees and hopeful signs that we may soon be down the path to a more normal life.

One sure sign that things are on the rebound is that I'll be back at Baldwin Wallace's Institute for Learning in Retirement to do another set of storytelling programs (details to come later this year) and the Lorain Historical Society has rescheduled our performance of the storytelling program, MADAM PRESIDENT - THE STORY OF VICTORIA WOODHULL for Saturday, November 20 at 11 a.m. at the Lorain Historical Society; 329 W. 10th St. in Lorain Ohio. For more information or to purchase tickets ($5.00/person) call the Society at 440-245-2563 or visit their website.

I'm happy to say that we have a new curriculum guide now available to go with our inventor's program, WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT? Teacher Nancy Mitchell created some wonderful activities to bring the story of these creative Ohioans to life. It will join our existing guides on the Great Lakes (LADY OF THE LAKE) and the Underground Railroad (RISE AT SUNRISE, REST BY MIDNIGHT). In the meantime, Nancy is currently working on a guide for our Victoria Woodhull program and I'm working out details for one to go with TRAIL MAGIC: THE GRANDMA GATEWOOD STORY. I anticipate these two will be ready by the end of the year. If you're a teacher or a home-schooler looking for additional resources for your middle-school students, visit our publications page. Of course, we've got a full selection of publications based on our programs available on that page as well - be sure to check those out.

I'm happy to say our storytelling program about Cleveland Browns Hall-Of-Famer Dante Lavelli is about ready! A short version was put together by Kelly Boyer Sagert for last fall's Baldwin Wallace ILR class and she and I are now putting finishing touches on a longer version. If you're interested in booking the program, drop me an e-mail and we can work out a time frame for a presentation on-line or in person.

Also almost ready for prime time is a new storytelling program of LOST RESTAURANTS OF DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND as a companion for my new book of the same name which will be published by Arcadia Press. Stay tuned for this program that will have you wanting to head for the nearest restaurant. Those of you looking for a perfect program to pair with a lunch or dinner event - this is for you!

In spite of the lack of programs during this past year, we've been busy and anticipate an even busier 2021. I'm so grateful to everyone who sent in donations through-out the year to help us during this time of crisis.Though we were not able to generate income with our performances, we were able to generate EXPENSES just keeping our doors open.These gifts have helped us move forward with our writing projects and our other efforts to tell the stories that others forget.
