About the Teller
I was born in New York City in 1944. Many years later I worked as a children’s librarian and that is where I discovered my love for storytelling. Since my late husband was German, I spent many years in Germany, although Portland was always my main home.
I founded the Portland Storytellers Guild along with Ken Iverson and am amazed how large it has grown.
“Laughter and Tears” : A collection of Jewish stories from Chelm, King Solomon plus religious and folk tales. The program lasts for 45 minutes.
“Circus on the Streets” : Jewish family stories from the Lower East Side (New York City) This is an original show which I created from my family stories. The show also has slides and music.
“Dinner For Four” : I “interview” Oscar Wilde, Frida Kahlo and Hans Christian Andersen and ask them questions about their lives and work.
