When the Pageant Wagon Comes to Town
When I worked in a Principle Approach school some 20 years ago, I taught a class about the history of drama and storytelling. Little did I know then how my research, curriculum writing, and teaching of that course would become part of the fibers of my being. When I studied the impact of Pageant Wagons in the middle ages on the landscape of Europe for the purposes of advancing the Gospel and restoring literacy and learning to the masses through the power of story and the arts, I knew this would become part of the rest of my life. Learn the true story that fertilized the seed-bed of my literacy advocacy, speaking programs, and independent publishing as Pageant Wagon Productions and Pageant Wagon Publishing. Grab a cuppa tea and enjoy a 20 minute epic adventure of story!

Learn her story in this Audio Storytime Podcast titled: Patriots, Petticoats, and Providential History. Originally published in 2 parts in the July and August 2018 issues of RUBY Magazine.
