Dianne Chandler, a Teller of Stories


I have many fond memories of my parents and grandparents, telling me a story when I was young, either to lull me off to sleep, or just to keep me entertained. A few years ago, while emceeing an event, I had the pleasure of listening to one of the most fantastic storytellers I've ever heard, Dianne Chandler.


I was so mesmerized by the story that during a recent Christmas show, I asked her to share it again. She told the story of Hoshmakaka, The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back. The story lasted about 15 minutes, and I sat in awe as I listened to every word.
