My Father was a Storyteller History,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
My father, Samuel Schuman, was a songwriter, musician, poet, and storyteller who made his living as an electrician. I retell and expand on his stories, a personal and historical saga that stretches from the help wanted ads of the Philadelphia Inquirer to the front page of the New York Times, from the pleasant beaches of Atlantic City to the hectic skyscrapers of Manhattan, and from his longed-for saxophone to my sister’s studio-upright piano. My father didn’t have a very good voice, but he wasn’t afraid to sing.
$101- $200
Two Kinds of Liars History,
Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
There are two kinds of liars: those who tell lies for fun, and those who tell lies for profit. Bill Greenfield – legendary hunter, trapper, fisherman, and Adirondack guide – was "the goldarndest, most unreasonable liar you ever saw." He told lies for fun. But George Hull, perpetrator of The Great American Hoax – the Cardiff Giant – told lies for profit. Two very different men, both Civil War veterans, provide tales both true and tall.
$101- $200
Same and Different: The Neverending Story of Chanukah History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Many people have some knowledge of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, usually incomplete and often inaccurate. I present the historical origins of the holiday in a way that is entertaining, understandable, and informative to audiences whether or not they are already familiar with the holiday. I am especially concerned with universal aspects of the story that relate to the ongoing struggle of people whose cultural and/ or religious background is different from that of the dominant culture. (This presentation was featured at "Sharing the Fire: The Northeast Storytelling Conference" in 2013 and will be published in "Story Club Magazine" in December, 2016.)
$101- $200
Song of the Century History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling

$101- $200
