Tall Tales, Small Tales
The State (Columbia, SC)
July 22, 2005
Eric Litwin is an Atlanta storyteller who makes a living at what used to be a lazy afternoon pastime for grandfathers and small-town barbers.
Litwin appears at this weekend’s Storytelling Festival — for a performance and one workshop — at the State Museum in Columbia.
“I could never have possibly imagined that I would end up doing this,” says Litwin, who moved to Atlanta from Washington about 10 years ago. “I really saw myself as an administrator.”
Litwin, 38, has master’s degrees in public administration and education.
“My goal was to be a teacher and then a vice principal and then principal. But as a teacher, I did so many creative things, mostly involving stories and music, that that lead to a career of telling stories to children.”
