Arthur Surette, a captivating and powerful storyteller (and darned good songwriter) will be appearing at the Corner House Inn's Story Telling Dinner Program on Thursday, Jan. 19th. Arthur is a born storyteller, though he says he had to give it up in his younger days since ten year old storytellers are often mistaken for liars. After wandering in the wilderness for forty years, he came to New Hampshire in 1989, felt an immediate spiritual connection to the place and never left. A keen observer of nature, both human and otherwise, his original stories and songs encompass everything from politics to four-legged chickens, and are a celebration of the human spirit, warts and all. Arthur recently spent some time with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, North Dakota. We look forward to his sharing the experiences of his journey.
