Dover Dems have put in place our major FUNdraising event of the year, Stories of Progress and Hope. New Hampshire storytellers Quinn Golden and Sebastian Lockwood will come to Dover to entertain and inspire. You can help make this grow to become an annual Storytelling Festival, featuring stories inspired by the values we share as Democrats. An evening for the entire family, all proceeds will be used to elect Democrats at the local and state levels.

While the tickets are free, your support as a sponsor will make this a successful fundraiser. Sponsorships range from $50 to $500+. Sponsors will be highlighted in the program and reserved seating is available on request.


For a sneak preview of the evening, check out our storytellers:       

Quinn Golden began public speaking nearly thirty years ago by addressing the groups and members of various associations that he belonged to. His public speaking evolved into teaching at seminars and workshops. Learning along the way that weaving stories and fables into speaking engagements bridged the gap between the audience just hearing the presentation, or becoming immersed in it, gradually the stories became more important than the topics.  Quinn loves to share tales, old and new, specializing in the tales of Geoffrey Lewis & Celestial Navigations.  Check Quinn's Facebook pages: Quinn Golden

Sebastian Lockwood Storyteller and teacher, Sebastian Lockwood tells the great epics: Gilgamesh, Odysseus, Caesar, Beowulf and Monkey. His studies in Classics and Anthropology at Boston University and Cambridge University in the UK laid the foundation for bringing these great tales into performance. Lockwood's performances are designed to take complex texts and make them accessible and exciting for audiences from 5 to 95. Lockwood has tutored and taught classes in higher education for 25 years. He now concentrates on performance, workshops and studio recording. Lockwood lives under Crotched Mountain with his wife, jazz singer and storyteller Nanette Perrotte.
