    Join storyteller Saundra Kelley

    to seek out, record and tell Thomasville’s lesser-known historic past for today!
    Students will be encouraged to reach back into their own memories and those of their families for the stories of Thomasville.  After the stories are researched, students will begin the process of learning to tell their story by diagramming them onto the “storyteller’s arc,” and learning to present them in an oral tradition format.  By the end of the course, students will have uncovered and learned how to share family stories that pertain to Thomasville’s unique history.
    Born in Tallahassee, Saundra Kelley is a Florida Cracker who moved to the mountains of East Tennessee for graduate school, and decided to stay awhile.  Based in Jonesborough, Tennessee, for the next ten years she traveled throughout the southeast telling stories and presenting at workshops, and became a performing member of the prestigious Jonesborough Storytellers Guild where she served as president for three years.  Recently returned to her roots in North Florida, she lives with her miniature poodle, Geoffrey.
