ABOUT OUR TELLERS
Labeled by teachers as high-spirited, uncooperative, and too talkative, Kim Weitkamp channeled those traits into a lifetime of high-energy, heartfelt, and hilarious artistry. We are all the better for it. Kim has been a full-time touring artist for the last 15 years and has gathered an armload of awards. More about Kim.
As a youngster in Louisiana, Diane Ferlatte was steeped in the oral tradition on her grandparent's porch, with the family and neighbors swapping stories, lies, and tales. As she grew older, Diane played piano, sang in church choirs, and became proficient in American Sign Language, all contributing to a career in storytelling. More about Diane.
