Bynum, NC - Although it’s called Sunday Stories for Grown Ups, Part 2 in the series is actually taking place this Friday, February 4 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Bynum General Store. The first Sunday Stories for Grown Ups had standing room only so attendees are encouraged to get there early to grab a seat. This series features a variety of storytelling styles and stories from some of the area’s finest storytellers.
Event organizer, Garry Lipson is a retired high school construction teacher and cross country track coach. His hilarious personal experience stories will have you on the edge of your seat. At this event, he will share Part II of the “Mu Farm Trilogy” based on his travels in the late ‘60s. Don’t worry if you missed Part I, Lipson will include a recap.
Joining Lipson is former professional comic book writer, Henry Vogel, who naturally took to making up stories once his son was born. As his son grew older, Vogel was invited to his son’s classrooms to share his stories and he’s been storytelling ever since.
Jane Hauser, a graduate of UNC, has been on-air talent with WBTV in Charlotte, and has taught French and English in Charlotte, Greensboro and Providence, RI. She shares stories of being a football coach’s daughter, a coal miner’s granddaughter and newspaperman’s wife. Hauser has been a professional storyteller for four years and has taught fairy tale interpretation at OLLI at Duke. She has entertained at the NC Storytelling Festival and will represent eight Southeastern states as a teller at the National Storytelling Network conference in Los Angeles.
Rounding out the line-up is Claire Ramsey who discovered storytelling by drawing pictures when she was still too young to write. Ramsey’s storytelling upgraded from hobby to a business, Stories with Claire, after she took a university storytelling class. The “premier storyteller” of Wake Forest and the ex officio of the North Carolina Storytelling Guild, Ramsey believes storytelling helps people value education and learn from one another.
Although this program is not intended for small children, young people ages 10 and up will definitely enjoy this event.
The third part in this series will take place March 6 and will feature three new storytellers so mark your calendars now!
