Stir: A Delicious Mix of Stories
by Kaye Byrnes
Since 1996 I’ve collected stories from many places. This kettle of tales represents the diversity of genre that makes storytelling such a powerful medium. A literary tale that reflects the genius of a classic American author, a personal story that reflects the joy and agony of everyday life, and a folktale that reflects the enduring lessons passed from generation to generation through stories.
