We are so excited to have Ann Marie Newman joining us for this program! Ann Marie Newman recently happily returned to her hometown of Clearbrook, MN where she is enjoying reconnecting with relatives and making new friends. A creative dreamer, she is a 30+ years long performance storyteller. For a delightful eight years, she was Storyteller in Residence for the Dallas Museum of Art. She is also a longtime stage actress, conceptual artist, writer, and a frequently published poet and poetry slam winner. During COVID isolation, Ann Marie started a vlog on YouTube called, Oopsy Annie: Joyful wanderer in this “oopsy world” where she shares stories about “oopsy" encounters, creative happenings and events of all kinds. As if that isn’t enough, because there’s so much she enjoys doing, Ann Marie recently began the column, Weekly Inky Winks with Oopsy Annie, in the Leader Record. A quote from Ann Marie to sum it all up is, “Engaging in creatively diverse story sharing with people near and far is my heart’s calling to a joy-filled life.”
