NEWS: FEBRUARY 15, 2012
1. BJ Abraham ('98 of Atlanta graduated from the storytelling program with a master's degree in 1998. Her website is currently under construction and is not up to date, BUT it's www.bjabraham.com. You can also hear clips of some of her stories on her CD for grownups at: www.cdbaby.com/cd/bjabraham
BJ has gotten a lot of mileage out of a story she created as a class assignment at ETSU: "The Night the Unsinkable Became the Unthinkable." It's a factual story told from the perspective of the ship. And she is enjoying doing it this year, especially -- the 100-year anniversary of that tragedy at sea.
The weekend of February 17 & 18 in Atlanta/Decatur, she will be one of the tellers at the 30th Annual Southern Order of Storytellers Festival. Bill Harley is the featured national teller. See website for details and if you are in the Atlanta area, please attend! Send link on to your friends, too. http://southernorderofstorytellers.org/festival/
