Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of wine, cheese, and storytelling with LTU professor Corinne Stavish!

Daddy said, “Be courageous!” Mama said, “Be careful!!” Grandmas said, “Be yourself!” Growing up with a fearful mother, a powerful father and a spirited grandmother created confusion and crystallized character. Join storyteller Corinne Stavish as she shares frequently hilarious, often poignant stories of lasting influences. These stories will sound familiar, because personal narratives connect us to universal truths. These personal narratives will sound familiar because family drama is universal.

Corinne was born in The Bronx, spent her childhood years in Tulsa, Oklahoma, divided her adolescence between Chicago and The Bronx, went to college in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois, reared her children in Evanston, Illinois, and moved to Michigan in midlife. Living in four states has given her an unusual perspective of this country and introduced her to a variety of people (characters) who populate her stories. Universally recognizable regional accents and situations fill her tales.

Corinne credits her father, Martin Grayson, for instilling in her a love of justice, a passion for history, a wicked sense of humor, and a drive to share stories. She uses her degrees in Theatre, Literature, and Performing Arts to great advantage, whether in the classroom or on stage, to shape personal and public history into inspiring narratives described as powerful and poignant. This year she has will be a featured teller at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN.
