Blessings in Disguise
With the perspective of hindsight we can find redeeming aspects to life’s most disturbing events and difficult moments. Storytellers Jeanne Anderson, Edward Hershey and Rob Luck will explore this idea..Their stories about the liberation that comes with realizing perfection is not everything, reassessing a lost opportunity and reconsidering a community pariah — seem especially timely as we complete a year like no other,
About the tellers:
Jeanne Anderson used storytelling to reach students of all ages while teaching elementary school. From stories of her childhood to fairy tales to Shakespeare, she enriched their lives by exploring everyday issues and encouraging children to see the world from a variety of perspectives. Now retired, she enjoys sharing her stories with audiences of all ages.
Edward Hershey draws stories from a bi-coastal life and varied career in sports writing, news reporting, municipal government, higher education and labor union organizing with stints as an antiques columnist, author of books on baseball and police hostage negotiation, Shakespearean theater president, basketball announcer and, for 44 years, a mainstay of the George Polk Awards in journalism. His memoir, “The Scorekeeper,” was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award.
Storytelling is hereditary for Hawaiian-born Rob Luck, who has lived in the Northwest for over 25 years. He is the bi-racial son of a Samoan dancer descended from a “talking chief” and a Marine veteran of World War II who became a prominent television and radio personality in his adopted home of Hawaii valued for his comedic storytelling.
