County Land Conservancy to Welcome Top Storyteller

Northwest Herald (McHenry County, IL) , January 5, 2011


The Land Conservancy of McHenry County will welcome award-winning storyteller Beth Horner as the featured speaker at its 20th annual meeting Jan. 30.

Horner will perform her story “The Pipeline Blues: A Story of Environmental Triumph,” the tale of one man and one song that motivated change in a city’s environmental policy. She has recorded the story for “Live From National Geographic,” performed it across the country, and seen it go on to inspire change in environmental policy in other communities. At its core, “Pipeline Blues” is about the power of the individual to make a lasting difference in his or her community.

A National Storytelling Network Circle of Excellence Oracle Award winner, Horner is sought after as a storytelling performance and teaching artist. She has performed at the National Storytelling Festival and is the narrative consultant with the NASA/Johnson Space Center’s Story Mining project, for which she is collecting stories from the scientists behind the Apollo Space Missions.
