T. Namaya's "Vermont My Home" Tour

T. Namaya, storyteller, poet, and humorist, is touring Vermont this Fall with "Vermont My Home: A Celebration!" -- including an evening at Hooker-Dunham Theater on September 24. The show takes its name from Namaya's recently released CD, based on his stories, music, and poems celebrating the Green Mountain state and his home on Blue Heron Pond. The show also features Namaya's stunning photographs of Southern Vermont.

T. Namaya has performed around the world and across the USA as a soloist and with his band, The Jazz Beat Ensemble. He has written three books of poetry, as well as a memoir called Journal of the Plague: Living and working with AIDS. His play "Beatnik Café" was performed in New York and Boston in 2010, to rave reviews. His artwork, photography, performance for peace (B 4 Peace Project), and the video "Bring the Soldiers Home" can be viewed at www.namayaproductions.com.

Further details about the performance and tour schedule are at www.vermontpoet.com/bio/ and www.namayaproductions.com. A portion of proceeds will support community development projects and peace education work through www.gracecares.com and www.vermontartpoetry.com.
