Thanks Norah for the invite to tell when I get to Boston.
I am Dublin based and for the moment am not travelling to the US.
But the life of a storyteller changes everyday, so who knows what may happern?
If I get there at all I would be delighted to share stories with you all.
Happy telling.
Brendan Nolan

Hi Norah,

I attended last night's event, and had a great time. Well done. Just cast my vote for the people's choice, though I was wondering why the name of the fellow who told the story about Orpheus and Karen Allen wasn't listed?

Norah- You and Andrea have done a wonderful job with this website. It's great to take advantage of technology to connect the community.I find it difficult to attend conferences, meetings ect being on the road so much, but can always touch base with my keyboard! Thanks for your efforts. Joan Gatturna

Hi Norah. Good to connect furthe to the Mass Mouth stuff online. Yes, I am best pals with Lawrence Hollie. I am spoken word-er and was clued to this circle after being clued to the Cambridge Storytellers group on Meetup, thanks to Jess Sutich (who kicked it at the slam last night.) I performed on her show at ImprovBoston at the start of last month. I'm looking for more gigs. See ya!

I didn't get to see you last night, but I was there with a friend and loved it!
Any chance you are interested in a MassMouth Harvard? I'm happy to help pull it together...
I haven't fount David at CISPES, but I have found CISPES. Any chance you can make this connection happen? We are putting together an event for Feb 24 (much around oral tradition... you'll hear all about it and I hope you'll come!) and want as much Salvadoran support as possible.
Look forward to meeting you again soon,
and yes! I love when everything lines up just right in the universe!
