This week’s teller in residence: Connie Regan-Blake

Connie Regan-Blake performs as ISC’s Teller-in-Residence August 15-19, 2017

The International Storytelling Center is pleased to welcome Connie Regan-Blake from North Carolina as this week’s teller in residence.

One of America’s most celebrated storytellers, Connie Regan-Blake has captivated the hearts and imaginations of people with her powerful performances.  Recognized in the storytelling community with the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence, Distinguished Service, and Lifetime Achievement awards, Regan-Blake has recently been invited by the Library of Congress to house the compilation of memorabilia from her life’s work as a storyteller, including her role in the birth and beginnings of the American Storytelling Revival. 

“With artful direction she lures us into the depths of joy and terror, hilarity and grief.  One minute we feel the pangs of regret, revenge, even the chill hand of death . . . in the very next story we luxuriate in the rib-bursting laughter of a mountain Jack Tale.  It’s all part of the storyteller’s magic.”  – School Library Journal

Connie will appear in matinee performances at 2 p.m., daily, Tuesday, August 15th through Saturday, August 19th. Reservations are recommended as seating is limited.  For reservations call (800) 952-8392 or (423) 913-1276.
