a woman gifted in the art of storytelling in front of an audience. She delighted us with her grandfather’s tale of elves and lollypop mines. For her to share this tale on St. Paddy’s Day was perfect.

She made me think of my own grandpa, Candygarden and the game of Candyland. It’s spring. Let’s make sure to plant some sweet magic of our own.

We also heard a few of our fellow writers read their tales and laughed and cried along with them. I’ve read the stories of those who brought their works to share. Wow. Every single one is so interesting. I look forward to our next session!
