A Note From J. L. Kimmel
The Art Of Storytelling & Illustration library tour has come to a close and, as I look back on the wonderful experience, I am reminded of the value of "saying a hearty 'yes' to adventure in life". This advice has been a mainstay in my creative process and therapeutic practice as well as a theme for the recent Art of Storytelling tour.
One never knows how things will turn out - moment to moment. And yet the willingness to say "yes" brought me the most wonderful gifts...
This fall those gifts included the lovely people of all ages I met at the Philadelphia, Baltimore, Charlottesville, and Richmond libraries and the Charlottesville Barnes & Noble. Thank you to you all! I was honored to inspire you, as you inspired me.
A big thank you to Wendy Anne Edwards at 1070 WINA - WINA Morning News: Weekend Edition, Charlottesville VA for a great early morning radio interview.
Thank you Caryle Duffy for your beautiful support at the Philadelphia Library Event!
I am so grateful to Sara Sgarlat at Sgarlat Publicity and Leonard Baker for taking such good care of me.
And thank you to Danielle and Natalie at SierraRed for providing on-going graphic design and social media marketing support.
