I grew up in a family of readers and storytellers. Being dyslexic, I learned that storytelling was a bridge to literacy and that creativity was the key to my survival.   I became a professional storyteller in 1978, and have continued to expand my expression of STORY to film, audio productions, and writing. Listen to more of Ken’s stories: Storytelling-CREATIVE!™  Links to Ken's work:


Storytelling happened to Kathy Santopietro during her career as an adult educator and she continued telling for 25 yrs.  She tells only a few “selfies” (personal stories) and prefers sharing folktales, classics and literary stories with adult/teen audiences in a variety of venues. She is a member of Rocky Mountain Storytellers and NSN as well as Northern Colorado Storytellers. She teachers for SPELLBINDERS, a storytelling teaching program accredited by the National Storytelling Network.

Kathleen’s story is “Springtime A La Carte” her version from an O’Henry story.


Maja Bumberak is a storyteller based in Budapest, Hungary. She tells stories from Hungarian folklore and other cultures of the world.  As a scholarship holder of the Hungarian Academy of Arts she is training teachers and student teachers in oral storytelling.  She believes “Stories can heal a community in a way nothing else can.” The title of her story is “When You’re Ready.”


Beth was in the Peace Corps in West Africa.  Then as a professor of History, Beth taught others about the Holocaust for over thirty years. Now in retirement, she still feels a responsibility to tell the stories of Holocaust survivors that she has had the honor to call her friends. She wrote CREATING LIGHT!  to share these stories and we are fortunate enough to hear one of them at this Tellabration! The title of her story is “Leo's Leap.”  Her beautiful book is $10 at
