A fortunate day spent on the trail with a park ranger who combined poetry, puppets and folktales showed Bob the possibilities of the storyteller’s way.
Thirty years later, he’s still on the path, listening with delight to others, exploring the intersection of traditional tales and daily life, and living with what he calls a terminal case of Story Fever.
Bob’s many community collaborations have included work with United Nations diplomats, migrant farmworker families, incarcerated teens, and multi-year residencies in Native American Pueblo schools.
His interest in encouraging others to craft and tell their most important stories led him to create The Endangered Stories Act
and a series of events called, F.E.A.S.T! Families Eating and Storytelling Together
. You can find his ‘Focused Meanders on Living a Storied Life’ at his blog: www.storytellerscampfire.com
