A Note from the President

Hello to everyone,

The Merry Month of May

That is the title of our next MO-TELL storytelling concert on May 11 at 7pm (CT). You will enjoy our storytellers. We have for your delight two women from Missouri, Carole Shelton and Heather Harlan. Carole often tells historical stories but lots of others as well. Heather plays a guitar and adds music to her tales. We also have two out of towners, Dan Keding and Jackson Gilman. I first met them through Missouri Storytelling Inc in St. Charles. Dan, from Illinois, tells some traditional tales and plays guitar and Jackson, from Massachusetts, uses a lot of humor in his telling. It will be an interesting and fun evening of stories. It is FREE. We will keep spreading storytelling throughout the state.

The St. Louis Storytelling Festival continues online with 70 shows. Go to their website and register. All the stories are related to Missouri history and storytelling. They will be available May 3-10, 2021. These are FREE concerts. Check out the list in the newsletter. The Liar’s contest is coming up in July. You have about a month to prepare your stories. We want to hear those tales. See the flyer. Thank you, everyone for sharing your stories this year. The stories have kept us grounded. We will continue to bring you stories online. We reach so many people this way. Hopefully, we will be able to bring you live and in-person programming also by the end of summer 2021.

Keep telling stories and I hope to see you soon.

Joyce Slater
