Elisabeth Anton

Elisabeth has been telling stories ever since the tender age of two when she memorized Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham,” and pretended to be reading to impress her uncle. She began writing her stories down sometime thereafter, and has spent her life telling stories in a variety of forms. Elisabeth recently joined the storytelling group at the Institute Library in New Haven, where she is learning how to craft compelling stories from her personal experiences. She is delighted to be part of the vibrant, Connecticut storytelling community.

Denise Page

Denise Manning Page is a writer, speaker and retreat facilitator who ha newly discovered the joy of oral storytelling. She is a Connecticut native and much of her writing and many of her stories stem from her experience of being a multi-generational New Englander.  Denise believes that sharing and listening to the life stories of others has the capacity to normalize the inevitable challenges of life and deepen understanding of others.  She is the mom of two, grandmother of four, including identical twin toddler grandsons.
She feels her best stories must wait until they are old enough to disavow any relationship to her and consequently not be embarrassed by them. Currently her address is in Madison but her soul lives in New Haven. She is the Vision Engineer for F.U.N.;  FiredUP! Network for women aging with zest.

The night will be holiday themed.
