Bill Gurnon first learned of the power of personal storytelling in 1999. He studied and practiced the craft of oral storytelling with mentor, Don Forsberg, along with other storytellers in a group known as “Real Lives Aloud” in Northfield, Minnesota. The group met weekly for about ten years and performed several times in storytelling concerts at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater. Bill’s oral stories were met with surprising interest and some were even recorded and aired on Twin Cities Public Television and Minnesota Public Radio.
When Real Lives Aloud disbanded and formal oral storytelling was no longer part of his weekly routine, Bill decided to transcribe his oral stories into written stories with the purpose of including them in a book for family and friends. This volume is a result of that effort.
For Bill, writing is a passion, and he presents this book written in his own words and in his own style. His ultimate goal is your entertainment.
