There is a new storytelling guild in town at St. John’s on the Lake, Milwaukee!

Art Beaudry, long time storyteller and member of M.A.S.T. (Milwaukee Area Story Tellers) has retired to St. John’s but not from storytelling. He and his wife Karen have sponsored storytelling concerts and hosted nationally known storytellers Michael Parent, Michael Cotter and Sid Lieberman at St. John’s. Last year Art taught a storytelling class for interested residents and began a monthly story share.
Now Art is officially calling it a Storytelling Guild and opening it to the public.

3:00–5:00 pm in the
Lower Level Community Room at
St. John’s on the Lake,
1840 N. Prospect Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53202.

Contact Art Beaudry at 414–239–7979 for more information. This is free and open to those interested in storytelling. Hopefully a daytime guild will meet the need of those who are not keen on night driving.
