An Evening with a Storyteller Part 2

January 12 @ 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm CST

Steve Maanum will perform more stories from his collection of embarrassing moments during An Evening with a Storyteller Part 2: How Many Embarrassing Stories can One Man Have?

“We have all experienced situations that didn’t go as planned, but most of us have enough dignity and common sense to keep them to ourselves. I, on the other hand, don’t appear to have any dignity or common sense. I turned many of my situations and embarrassing moments into a monthly column.”

“Some of my stories are told from the mind of a boy growing to manhood, while others are told through the eyes of a confused, middle-aged man, who is still struggling to find maturity or . . . rebelling against it. I’m a Baby Boomer, born halfway through the last century, and at my age I’m living proof that growing old is not necessarily synonymous with growing up.”

Steve has always been a storyteller. As a school teacher, he made it a regular part of his classroom day and following retirement, he has continued to weave stories into his family-style nature photography and writing presentations “When I tell a story, I want it to jog the memories of the listeners so they might recall similar situations from their past. I believe our life is our story and each of us has one worth telling.”

Join Steve at the Jacob V. Brower Visitor Center and see if he can brighten your day. Then go out and make your own stories when you join us for the lantern lit ski and snowshoe beginning at 5 p.m.
