Join Ken Iverson, Patrick Gannon, and Janice Alexander as they share a variety of stories that lead to unforeseen consequences. From the plight of the 'Famine Irish' to what happens when the Spirit of the Woods comes knocking at your door; choices, like pebbles thrown in still water, lead to ripples of unexpected outcomes.

Patrick Gannon

As a retired elementary school teacher, Patrick Gannon has always been fascinated how stories comprise so much of the language arts. Though he tells a variety of stories, he is particularly fond of sharing historical and biographical stories of people and events of which many people are unaware.


Janice Alexander

Janice Alexander joined the Portland Storytellers Guild in 2015, shortly before retirement, and has been telling tales ever since.(Some based in fact, others not.) She especially enjoys sharing thought-provoking stories..
