Rockin' On with Happy Hearts in Tough Times
Jo Putnam - storyteller, educator, writer and environmentalist - visits the Corner House Innís Storytelling Dinner Program on Thursday,
March 21st. Jo has told stories, presented workshops and residences throughout the United States, in Canada and Western Europe.
From an Ageless and Ever-Green imagination, her Scottish Heritage, and an on-going love affair with the natural and supernatural world, Jo will intertwine stories and poetry designed to strike chords on heartstrings and spread smiles across faces.
Jo's vibrant storytelling presentations spring from a lifetime's wealth of experiences as teacher, writer, workshop designer, camp counselor, mountain trip leader, widely traveled military wife, mother, grandmother, outdoor enthusiast and environmentalist.
Listening to and observing people and the splendor of the natural world is her ongoing inspiration for story creation. When not directly involved in the art of storytelling, writing, or volunteering she can be found devouring stacks of books, walking wooded trails, climbing mountains, cross country skiing, snow-shoeing, swimming, kayaking, or sitting by waterfalls practicing the fine art of doing nothing!
Her wide-ranging repertoire includes numerous tales from this land's first nation peoples because so many of their stories promote respect for the natural world and reflect the connection of all creation.
