SPEAKER:

Historical Storyteller

There’s always more to a story. If the subject is Samuel Clemons, what else is there to know about him? Why did he choose to use the pseudonym Mark Twain? He wrote Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer but what about A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court or The Innocents Abroad?

There’s more to Ben Franklin than flying a kite and signing the Declaration of Independence. What’s the rest of the story behind the 1936 Berlin Olympics, besides the success of Jessie Owens? What do you remember about the 1950s…music, politics, movies and more?

Presentations are geared to different audiences that range from a Rotary Club, church group, a company or school ‘lunch and learn’, a sorority, garden club or children’s learning center. Assisted Living or Independent Living communities are also wonderful.

No matter the audience the goal is to engage listeners with questions and answers which enables everyone to learn, to stimulate curiosity and to understand each other.
