New Year, New Stories: Storytelling Arts of Indiana to host Zoom show this Saturday

Quaratine can be a bit boring but Beth Horner, storyteller, has a solution for us. She talks about her upcoming zoom show on January 9th, 2021! This is something you don’t want to miss.

Horner has been all over the country telling stories, from Dollywood to NASA, with the pandemic forcing her to redesign the way she performs. Her Zoom show on January 9th called “Who Signed Me Up for This?” is about how sometimes life takes you on unexpected journeys, for which you couldn’t possibly be prepared. Horner’s storytelling has been described as being “akin to great stand-up comedy,” but viewers shouldn’t expect to see a bunch of jokes. Saturday’s show is a perfect, relaxing way to kick off the new year.

About Beth Horner 

Noted for her spirited stage presence, comic sensibility, and warm, energetic style, Beth Horner’s stories run the gamut, from WWII to bawdy, romance-novel satire. A National Storytelling Network ORACLE and Circle of Excellence award recipient, she has worked with Nashville songwriters at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort’s Lyrics & Lore night, taught NASA astrobiologists the fine art of storytelling, and performed at the International Storytelling Festival and on “Live from National Geographic.” Horner’s love of all kinds of stories – traditional, literary, family, musical, historical and hysterical – makes her a joyous emissary into the world of story.

“Horner’s timing and delivery are so moving and funny that her performance is akin to great stand-up comedy.” – Bulletin Storytelling Review
