Winter Tales: Stories for a Cold Dark Night

The tourists are gone, the stores are empty, there’s snow on the mountain and a fire in the stove.  It’s time to warm the heart with songs and stories. Please join us as Ashland’s true storytelling series continues Thursday, January 19th with Winter Tales: Stories for a Cold Dark Night.  Six brave community members will tell a true winter tale from their own lives, in ten minutes, without notes, to help raise money and awareness for Dunn House, a shelter and care center for women and children suffering from domestic violence. The event is sponsored by The Hearth: Real Stories by Regular Folks and takes place at First Congregational Church, 717 Siskiyou blvd beginning at 7pm.  Winter ale and mulled wine will be available. Tellers include Charlotte Nuessle, Lincoln Zeve, Joy Hosey, Julie Akins, Phoenix Sigalove, and Sean Gallagher.  Music by Trent Yaconelli.  Cost is $5 and all proceeds from the event will go to Dunn House.  For more information go to

  1. Thanks for a great night Mark. Very special and rare experience. Glad you are making it less rare in the world.
    Nice meeting you tonight. Look forward to chatting about storytelling and future events.

  2. Thursday’s gathering for “The Hearth” was , for me, a never in my life WOW event. The people and the stories they shared deepened my hope for the human experience. We are connected to each other whether we like to admit it or not. Despite our back grounds. Despite our distances across the lands and seas. Despite the side walks we cross to our new neighbors yard. My life is always richer when I act as a team player. I am already a better person because of last night. I hope that I will be less fearful and more available to the dear people that God has placed near or on my path. Last night just proved my belief over again. I love my gynormous family and look forward to meeting each and every one of you. Most of us aren’t nearly as scary as we look.
