Lyn Ford shares "HOME-FRIED TALES"--well-known, unknown, home-grown, or my own"--stories seasoned with humor, hope, and heart, rooted in her familyís Afrilachian storytelling wisdom. Lyn is a national storyteller, workshop facilitator and keynote speaker,Ohio teaching artist and member of the Greater Columbus Arts Councilís Artists-in-Schools Program, and mentor for Thurber House’s young author camps and workshops.

and
"SPOOKERS & HAINTS", from silly to spine-tingling tales of things that go bump in the night, shared with your listenersí in mind.
