Event Description

Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi

Funeral Foibles and Festive Faux Pas

Sometimes a momentary mistake can unleash a calamitous chain of events. Lorraine’s original tales and inventive retellings of old tales contain both wit and wisdom. Join her in a delightful evening of stories of lighthearted blunders.

"Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi's expressive face and gestures season the words and sounds of her stories. She is mesmerizing. The energy she generates with an audience is perceptible, it warms and fills the space, as does the laughter and the smiles it produces. She's remembered well by our audience. We've been pleased and privileged to have her as a storyteller at Story Sundays at the Glen Sanders Mansion, Scotia, NY."
Joe Doolittle, Producer, Story Sundays, an adult storytelling dinner series, Scotia, NY
