Cora Ciampi has been telling stories professionally since 1981. What started as work in a children's library in Sheridan Wyoming became a work of art. She tells tales filled with emotion and wonder. She can make you laugh one minute and cry the next. She has developed her craft thru the years telling stories in many venues and to all ages.
"I have traveled to many places to hear Cora tell and her stories are always a treat. I look forward to being in the audience every chance I get." Lesa - Dewitt, MI
Lauretta Phillips has been telling stories professionally since 1987. She writes most of her own tales although she has been known to tell a few tall tales from long ago and far away. She is the creator, producer and host of The Talking Stick. A radio program that promotes the oral traditions of storytelling at Colby-Sawyer College since 1996.
"I found Sisters Too delightful. We had a wonderful dinner and some great stories from Lauretta and her sister Cora at the Corner House Inn at Center Sandwich. We look forward to seeing them again soon."
