Three Homewood storytellers will be featured Tuesday, Jan. 20, in the one-year anniversary Homewood Stories show.

In addition to Homewood Stories founder Karen O’Donnell, James Hart Junior High theater teacher Greg Weiss will perform. Weiss has been a storyteller for many years, and has introduced his students to the craft in part by bringing nationally known storytellers to Homewood to perform.

Mike Welsh is a long-time Homewood resident who has stories to tell from his life as a police officer, lawyer, teacher and sone of Homewood icon Art Welsh, according to Homewood Stories founder Karen O’Donnell.

O’Donnell, Weiss and Welsh will be joined by returning storytellers Paul Teodo, who last performed at Homewood Stories in September, and Valentine Soposky, who performed last summer.
There is no cover charge for the show, but donations are accepted.

The doors to the meeting room at Grady’s Grille, 18147 Harwood Ave., open at 6 p.m. The show will start at 7:30 p.m.
