This month's theme is "JOURNEYS"
A long strange trip, venturing out and coming back again, leaping into the void, vacations, adventures and just plain life. Come celebrate Odyssey’s 15 year anniversary!
Storytellers include: A daughter of New England, Anne Baldwin grew up in a family of Irish storytellers.  Pre-television days, the family gathered for evening story telling, reciting poetry, and reading children’s books. Anne never chose to wash the supper dishes to avoid this entertainment. She loved the stories and poetry, and still does. She shared that love with her children and grandchildren, and with the children she served as a librarian in elementary schools up and down the east coast. In 2017 she left her cozy house in the beautiful Maine woods for the warmth of Tucson and the company of her daughter’s family. She is writing a book of her own, Mully, the Dog, and the Treasure. Set in Ireland at the time of the Viking invasions, the heroine, Mully, inherits the role of keeper of the tribe’s legends, and must save herself and the tribe’s treasure from the ruthless invaders. It’s an exciting tale and shows a truth Anne firmly believes: stories that are passed on with love are powerful, even holy, not to be treated lightly. She and her agent are negotiating with a publisher. Stay tuned.  
An on-again, off-again adventurer,  Susan Woodward  lived in Seattle until age 13 and spent seven summers on her great-aunt’s ranch just north of Jackson Hole, WY. She has been married and divorced twice, raised two wonderful sons; designed & taught needlepoint for many years; worked 23 years as a realtor, then retired to become a full-time RVer. Presently settled in Tucson, writing, and painting, but the gypsy in her soul is whispering in her ear again. She is currently writing a book based on the events that triggered her RV adventures. The working title is When Things Change: Your GPS for Getting Unstuck & Reinventing Your Life. The anticipated publication date is fall 2019.

Since 2004, Odyssey Storytelling has been bringing live storytelling to Tucson audiences
Every month six people are invited to tell ten-minute personal stories on a theme to a live audience.  The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller.
