Charlotte Blake Alston: Cow Switch Tail & Healing Hands

Feb 14, 2018

February is Black History month. In recognition of that we will revisit Charlotte Blake Alston, a Philadelphia storyteller and friend of the Lehigh Valley storytelling Guild. I won’t bore you with the litany of her accomplishments.  Her skills and talents are evident in her storytelling.

I will draw two stories from her CD, Wadin’ in the Water. Both tales are of African origin. Charlotte’s telling of them is what makes them special. Here is what I mean.

That was Charlotte Blake Alston.

The Guild’s Winter Children’s Series at Godfrey Daniels continues. On Sunday, March 1st at 2:00 pm the gentle Robin Reichert will entrance her audience. March 15th is the daring Denise McCormack, ending the month with the charming Catherine Moore. Larry Sceurman, who got snowed out in January, will defiantly appear on April 12th.

At all these events, Cops & Kids will be there handing out free books: worth the price of admission.

The Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild holds its Storytelling Circle at Godfrey Daniels at 7 East 4th Street in Bethlehem on the second Wednesdays of the month at 7:30 pm (except the month of August). Come and listen to stories or try out a story yourself. We are a friendly audience and the event is free.

That’s all for now. Have fun and keep a story in your heart.
