In Memoriam Stories & Remembering
On Thursday afternoon, July 7, some of the storytellers will be touring Vancouver on StoryWalks with the Vancouver StoryTellers from 1:30 to 4:00. Some people will choose not to join the Walks and others will choose to join a shorter Walk.
Jan Andrews is going to conduct a “Stories & Remembering Drop-in” at the Conference venue that afternoon. If you would like to join her and share stories about the storytellers we have lost this year (or even those we have lost in previous years), she would be delighted. If you are not able to come to conference, but would like to share a story, please e-mail your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Marva Blackmore will make sure they are given to Jan so that she can share them with those who come to the Drop-in.
