Press Release Simon Brooks

British Storyteller Simon Brooks returns to Corner House 

On Thursday evening, April 5th Simon Brooks, renowned New Hampshire storyteller from the British Isles, makes an encore appearance at the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner program. Simon’s stories are sometimes irreverent, sometimes funny, sometimes deep, and always enjoyable. He combines the intimacy of a one-on-one conversation with the intensity of a solo theatre performance. 

Simon's mother told him he was telling stories when she caught him falling from the sky. His family often visited the wilds of Wales, to play in castle ruins and dark forests. Simon moved to America in 1994 and, after living on the West Coast for five years, moved to New England where the rolling countryside reminds him of home. (If he finds a really good beer, he says he will never leave! - although good stories and company will also keep him here!)

To date, Simon has released 2 family-friendly storytelling CDs, 2 CDs for ‘tweens and up, and a wonderful audio book of Gilgamesh for young adults. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear British storyteller Simon Brooks at the Corner House Inn on Thursday evening April 5th. Storytelling Dinners are held every Thursday evening at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich from late October through May. The dinner begins at 6:30 pm, and the cost is $22.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are strongly suggested.
