Hillside Market Community Days


I told my first story in New Mexico at Community Days at Hillside Market in Santa Fe!  The community of storytellers is so inspired and generous here.  There is something about living near beauty and land that is reaching for the sky that makes you want to connect with something bigger than you.  What better way to do that than telling stories, right?!


African History Month

Come hear me tell stories from Africa and enjoy a family friendly event next Saturday, February 7 at Bright Horizons at Naperville.  I’ll be telling stories at noon and 12:30.  For a flyer to share with your friends, visit:  http://child-care-preschool.brighthorizons.com/~/media/bh/centers/1493/documents/celebrateafrica27.ashx.  You can also RSVP on Facebook.  Hope to see you there!

“Under the Branches of My Family’s Tree”

Come hear me read a memoir piece about the strength passed down from generations of amazing people in my family.  I’ll be reading at Waterline Writers in Batavia on December 21 at 7 pm.  If you’ve never attend this reading event, it is something to put on your bucket list and cross off on December 21!
