Boca Raton, FL – Heard any good stories lately? They’re guaranteed with storyteller Pat Nease when she presents “From Panama City with Love” at the Boca Raton Public Library on November 2 at 4:30pm. The library continues its 2019 Story Central theme, “Cultural Connections,” with a performance by this award-winning storyteller, whose original stories and outrageous lies make for an unforgettable show.

Three-time winner of the Florida Liars Contest, Pat Nease has been blessed with an enlarged funny bone. Her sense of humor and lively style, coupled with her array of folk, family, original, and bone-chilling tales, have delighted audiences at libraries, schools, concerts, campfires, churches, parties, and more. A retired educator and past president of the Florida Storytelling Association, Pat is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Florida Storytelling Association and National Storytelling Network’s Oracle Award. She has performed at numerous festivals and events, including The Cracker Storytelling Festival, The Ocala Storytelling Festival, Gaylord Palms’s Best of Florida Celebration, the Stephen Foster Festival, the Ocean Springs Mississippi Storytelling Festival, the Florida Citrus Festival, and the Orlando Storyfest, among others.

“One of the amazing things about storytelling is that when we listen, we travel the world from the comfort of our seats. The storyteller is our guide, and the journey can be nothing short of extraordinary,” notes Story Central facilitator, Caren S. Neile, Ph.D., MFA. “Plus, we don’t have to worry about passports, airports or travel sickness!” A performance storyteller and author, she has taught storytelling and writing for twenty-five years in universities and community settings. She currently teaches at Florida Atlantic University.

If you’re looking for a fun, out-of-the-ordinary experience, register for this free presentation through the library’s calendar at bocalibrary.org.
