Six storytellers tell true, personal stories on the theme without notes. This month's theme: Not As Advertised…
Bait and switch, No guarantees, Buyer beware. Ever go on a blind date with someone that sounded good on the phone? Are you the proud owner of a "lemon" the car dealer won't take back? Have you ever bought a house "as is?" Sometimes things are not what they seem.
Storytellers: Instructional systems designer, Joni Roco; Unitarian Universalist minister, Ron Phares; Editor of Hot House jazz magazine, Yvonne Ervin; and more!
See our website for information on this month's storytellers! www.odysseystorytelling.com.
Since 2004, Odyssey Storytelling has marched forth entertaining, inspiring and enlightening Tucson through stories from regular folks like you. Get involved as a teller or a listening—stories that are not heard are not stories. All ages are invited, but stories are never censored.
"The great listeners live blessed lives, because they are surrounded by people under the influence of their listening - people experiencing a fundamental form of connection with others, people whose creativity
and humanity have been invited to emerge."
~ Doug Lipman, The Storytelling Coach
