Maine Storytelling

On July 26th WERU held our 3rd annual Maine storytelling event at the Alamo Theatre in Bucksport, as part of that town’s Wednesday on Main summer series. The theme this year was “My Maine: The State as Experienced by Local Storytellers”. Today we bring you Act 2 which featured Amy Roeder, John & Katie Greenman, Brook Ewing Minner and Naomi Graychase.

**The stories told by Brook Ewing Minner and Naomi Graychase were edited for length for the purposes of fitting into the Maine Currents time slot, but unedited versions of both of their stories are included here along with the archive of the Maine Currents show. The first file (below) is the complete show. The 2nd is Brook Ewing Minner’s unedited story and the 3rd is Naomi Graychase’s unedited story**
