Connie Regan-Blake: How to Tell a Story

Record #:
Storyteller Connie Regan-Blake of Asheville maintains a busy schedule, performing nationally and internationally and conducting workshops to teach others the art of telling stories. A visit to her cousin, who was working in a library, started Regan-Blake on her storytelling career. In 1975, the two women decided to tell stories full-time, and for the next three years they performed around the country. They eventually settled in Asheville where Regan-Blake met her future husband. In July, the National Storytelling Network presented her with the 2006 Oracle Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her “sustained and exemplary contribution to storytelling in North America.”
