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.

I Just Work Here: Winston Hall, “Look at All of the Little Black Dots”

Storyteller Winston Hall shares his story onstage at the Woman’s Department Club of Shreveport on Saturday, April 1, 2017.

Careers are tricky things. Sometimes, you pursue one career only to wind up in another line of work. Other times, a career sort of finds you – you take a job to make ends meet and, years later, you realize it’s become more than a job. And then, sometimes, you tell the owner of the China Garden Buffet in San Angelo, Texas that you’re a professional piano player (even though you only know a few songs) and – next thing you know – you’re tickling the ivories.
