| Great StoryTelling Network Newsletter
Volume 14, Issue 9 – 30 September 2018
I delayed sending out the newsletter because I wanted to share a very special story with you. Earlier this month, I was invited to write a story for a booklet being prepared for the centenary celebrations of a church in my hometown. In it, I write about Sister Alphonse Coombs, who also makes an appearance in my collection of stories, Two Snakes Whistling at the Same Time. With the editor’s permission, I am now able to share it with you.
