Press Release Lauretta Phillips

Colorful Tall Tale Teller returns to Corner House Thurs. Nov. 17

Colorful storyteller Lauretta Phillips of Andover, NH spins yarns at the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner program on Thursday, Nov. 17th. 

 Lauretta says she has been telling stories to anyone who will listen since 1987. She tells about MY GAL SAL who lives in a white house painted green with two front doors on the back. She tells stories about Kate who was  
named Queen of the Yukon and was a flaming red head (literally). She tells stories about her grandpa and grandma and about how the turkeys turned blue and the trout got its fur. She tells tales about the guys down at the mini mart and sometimes she even tells true stories although she is inclined to say that there is some truth in every story. She lives out in the country and tells about that too. She has been known to scare the daylights out of ya or to make you laugh and sometimes cry. She likes to tell stories with her sister Cora Ciampi and says this whole thing is her fault.
Lauretta is the president of NH Storytelling Alliance, a founding member of Central New Hampshire Storytelling Guild, a member of the National Storytelling Network and the League for the Advancement of New England Storytelling. She facilitates workshops and classes on storytelling and helps people find a way to pass their stories on.  
Enjoy a great comfort meal and be warmed by Lauretta’s dry Yankee wit on Thursday evening, Nov. 17th. Storytelling Dinners are held every Thursday evening at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich from late October through May. Dinner begins at 6:30 PM and the cost is $21.95 per person, plus tax & gratuity. For more information and reservations contact the Corner House at 284-6219 or online at
