Story time on TV

Our own Ellouise (Diggle) Schoettler (and one of Maryland's most popular storytellers) appeared on Fairfax Virginia Cable TV recently as a guest on a show called OUT OF THE PAST, hosted by Ed Myers and Chuck Langdon. The program, started by Ed almost 20 years ago, is
Fairfax Cable's longest running series.

In addition to a half hour of discussion of the art of modern storytelling, Ellouise performed one of her most requested storys: "The Wedding Dress."

Ellouise is featured weekly on her own TV show on Maryland Cable, but I believe this was her first appearance on Virginia TV.

The discussion ranged from the early days from before writing was invented to the "trobadours" of the middle ages, to modern day storytelling.

.....and even a discussion of the great storytellers who graduated from the legendary Charlotte Central High School....from Marion Hargrove (See Here Private Hargrove......1942) to best selling author Jan Karon.....and Charles Kuralt.

By the way, Ellouise has a website that you might want to visit. It's:
