Massachusetts storyteller Bob Reiser spins tall tales at the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner Program on Thursday, April 27th. Says Bob of his upcoming performance: “Can Stories mend a broken world? In long ago Baghdad, the two greatest storytellers in the land duel for the position royal tale-spinner. One is Muslim and one is Jewish. Come, watch the stories ricochet back and forth as their beloved city suddenly faces a danger that only they see coming! Think of it as the Arabian Nights with a twist and a Spritz!"
Author, teacher and story teller, Bob Reiser has tickled school, library and festival audiences from Vancouver BC to Boston, MA. As storyteller Jay O’Callahan says, “Bob smiles with his whole body!”
Listed by McFarland Press as one of the “120 best living English-speaking storytellers” he has been performing professionally for 25 years. Recently featured at the Boston Story Slam Finals, Jonesborough Tennessee’s National Storytelling Festival, New York’s Clearwater Hudson River Revival, and, of course, New Hampshire's Corner House Inn, Bob’s stories range from sagas to far-out fables to hilarious, sometimes bittersweet tales of growing-up in Brooklyn.
His books include Carry it On and Everybody says Freedom, written with the late Pete Seeger and David Gets His Drum, created with jazz drummer Panama Francis. His new book, Story Fever, is expected to be published in 2017.
