Event Description


Award winning storyteller Tony Toledo brings his own mixture of
Pie, passion, letters, lies and storytelling in this fun March feature which he entitles "Paper Memories: Stamps, Friendship and the Found Art of Letter writing"

According to Tony, "Letters are more than words on paper. They are time machines and friendship connections." He will share his favorite letters and the people who wrote them. You will feel like you were at the Beatles Polyester Party on Bowlus Ave, with him watching his Aunt Margaret stir up a cake and jumping off a cliff with Tony and his pal George. There is much wisdom and even a bit of humor tucked in beside the stamps. Come hear for yourself. You might even be inspired to put pen to paper yourself.

Tony Toledo is one of Boston's best storytellers. Having grown up... ok, ok... having grown big in Defiance, Ohio, Tony Toledo snuck out under the Buckeye Fence late one spring evening. He has been on an adventure ever since. He rode his bicycle from Ohio to Massachusttes to visit his cousins back in 1984. That was the first time he ever ate lobster; the first time he heard Folk Radio; the first time he'd visited Massachusetts. All three were grand.

By the fall of 1987, Tony had made Massachusetts his new home and had discovered Storytelling. It was one of those rare magic moments. He dove into the Storytelling world with both feet flapping and a heart full of passion. He studied with the best Storytellers in New England, and soon learned not to flap his feet quite so much. He took his natural ability for spinning a tale, added a bucketfull of hope and hung out his shingle in 1990. He's been telling stories full time ever since. At first it was a lot of macaroni, but now he can even afford the cheese!
