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
