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

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
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!
