Love Lost, Found and Fumbled with Beth Horner, February 11

Are you looking for a way to celebrate love this February? Join us on February 11 at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom for a special Valentine’s treat, Love Lost, Found and Fumbled: a romantic, raucous romp through stories of love — from classic, tragic and laughable love stories to modern romance novels with sought-after storyteller Beth Horner!

A National Storytelling Network Circle of Excellence Oracle Award winner, Beth has been a crowd-pleasing storytelling performance and teaching artist since 1983. She has performed multiple times at the National Storytelling Festival, on Live From National Geographic, at Miami’s International Art of Storytelling Festival, and most recently served as narrative consultant for NASA/Johnson Space Center’s Story Mining project for which she collected the stories of the scientists behind the Apollo Space Missions.

Noted for her vivacious stage presence, comic sensibility, and warm, energetic style, Beth possesses a repertoire of stories that have been called “heartfelt, articulate and truthful.” 

Beth was born on a farm in Boone County, Missouri where she came to the art of storytelling naturally, having been raised by a city grandmother who told her fairy tales learned from library books, an English Professor mother who introduced her to literature and poetry, a sister who starred her in farmyard productions of plays and musicals and a Farmer/Meteorologist father who regaled her with stories of her ancestors – of both good and questionable repute! Although her education began in a small rural school, Beth’s love of literature and story spurred her on to earn a Masters Degree in Library Science and to become a Librarian before launching into Storytelling performance, consultancy, and teaching. Beth’s love of all kinds of stories – traditional, literary, family, musical, historical, and hysterical – makes her a joyous emissary into the world of the story.
