From Pat Konstam, arrangements committee for Noa Baum visit
Noa Baum, an award-winning storyteller from Maryland and a member of the
National Storytellers Network, will give two free, public performances in San Antonio on Sept. 10-11, 2007. I'm helping publicize her visit and I'm wondering if the San Antonio Storytellers Association would announce her
shows through your newsletter or email network and/or distribute flyers at your August 21 meeting. We would love to invite your members to hear her.
An Israeli-American who was born in Jerusalem, Baum does a one-woman show called "A Land Twice Promised" based on her dialogues with a Palestinian
woman, retelling their stories of Jerusalem and those of their mothers. She will perform that show at Trinity University's Chapman Auditorium at 7:30
p.m. Monday, Sept. 10.
At 12 noon on Tuesday, Sept. 11, she will do a storytelling performance called "Building Bridges through Stories of Peace and Justice" at On Stage
at Madison Square at Madison Square Presbyterian Church, 319 Camden Street downtown.
I am attaching a one-page bio called "About Noa." There Baum says her storytelling "is a source of great joy and healing. It is the beating heart connecting all aspects of (my) work as a performance artist, educator and
facilitator of workshops for communication, healing and change." She also has a web page, www.noabaum.com.
Sponsors of her visit to San Antonio include the Trinity University Lecturers and Visiting Scholars Committee; Trinity Departments of Speech and Drama, Religion, English, History and Political Science; Rabbi Barry H. D.
Block's Discretionary Fund of Temple Beth-El; the Roley Lecture Series at Madison Square Presbyterian Church; Friends Meeting of San Antonio; and Incarnate Word Sisters Justice and Peace Committee.
If you would like more information or would like flyers to distribute at your August meeting, please reply to this email or call me at (210)656-0355.
Thank you for considering this.
