Momma And Daddy: Laura Crawford, “Robert Popper’s Song”

Laura Crawford’s father, Dr. Robert Popper, narrowly escaped death at the hands of the Nazis during the antisemitic pogrom known as Kristallnacht.  The unbelievable journey that ensues is a globe-spanning journey of courage, luck, endurance and love. Crawford, who founded the world-renowned Centenary Suzuki School, was kind enough to share her father’s awe-inspiring journey at an All Y’all live storytelling event on Saturday, March 12, 2016.

OMG: Stephen Price, “More Time”

Storyteller Stephen Price shares his story at All Y’all Live: “OMG” in August 2015.

To hear someone say that they believe in life after death is one thing. To hear someone say that they have experienced life after death is another matter entirely. Stephen Price, who shared his vivid recollections of the afterlife at our August 2015 live storytelling event “O.M.G.,” reminded us just how fragile our lives really are.
