Karen Chace, Masterful Storyteller

Award-winning Storyteller Karen Chace

Wanting to help my WBCX-FM listeners understand the central role of storytelling in our past and present, I interviewed Karen Chace of East Freetown, MA. I couldn’t have made a better selection. In 2009 Karen won the coveted Brother Blue Award. Next month she will travel to Texas and receive the National Storytelling Networks Oracle Award for Service and Leadership in the Northeast.

During our stimulating interview, we covered these and other topics:

–What prompted her to become a professional storyteller
–High points in the historical development of storytelling
–How storytelling skills can apply beneficially to business settings
–Essential ingredients of a great story
–One of Karen’s favorite brief stories from Dan Keding, which she told during the interview
–Storytelling and theater. . .similarities and differences
–Origin of her moniker “Storybug”
