A little history: Writers Read, founded by Susan Sparrow and Hal Zina Bennett of Tenacity Press, has been happening monthly on the last Thursday of the month since 1999 in Ukiah, California, starting at the Emerald Cafe, moving to the Saturday Afternoon Club, then to Colored Horse Studios for five years (2004-2009) and as of 2009, back almost full-circle to Art Center Ukiah’s annex, which is next door to the former location of the Emerald Cafe. Dan Barth and Theresa Whitehill co-produced the series with Susan and Hal for many years. As of August 2014, Bill Churchill took over producing the series with Theresa Whitehill as co-producer. As of January 2017, Michael Riedell has taken over hosting the series, with Theresa Whitehill and Bill Churchill as co-producers.

Storytelling

January 16, 2010

Portable Puppet Show

I come from another place.
I am not just devoted to story, I am devoted to legend and fairy tale.
Myths, euphemisms, these lozenges of language are powerful.
They operate in unseen and uncanny ways, and ultimately
come to rest in the heart.

-Theresa Whitehill, MLK Birthday, 2010
