A Smorgasbord of Tales by Storyteller Tony Toledo. You just might jump when Tony tells The Bog. You might just laugh when he tells about his eighth grade crush on Jane and his sweet rejection. You might just sigh when he tells about The Kindergarten Old Man. And you might just see a bit of wisdom in The Saucer and the Apple, an old Russian folk tale. Hey, you’ll even get a free bookmark! And a postcard to send to your mama. And a heart full of stories.
Bio: Tony Toledo has been telling stories to pay his rent since the end of the twentieth century. Tony has told stories for giggling first grade students, snarly high school juniors and contented senior citizens. There is always participation in Tony’s Tales, as well as echoes of his Ohio childhood farm years. Tony was presented with the Oracle Award from the National Storytelling Network for his support of storytelling. He was also surprised with the Brother Blue and Ruth Hill Storytelling Award presented to him by Northeast Storytelling. Tony is 61 years old but he reads at a 69 year old level. In 1998 Tony bought his massive one tenth of an acre estate with his storytelling. He has just enough room for his books, his bicycle and his basil.
