The SFC presents Shawn Anthony - Storyteller
on
Tuesday, February 9th at 8pm
 
So pick a comfortable chair, pour a favourite beverage, and join us as we are entertained by storyteller Shawn Anthony.
 
A native of Fogo Island, Shawn Anthony’s storytelling ability is a legacy passed down from his ancestors who spent their lives working on the ocean. Shawn’s stories, based upon his recent book, “Apse The Gate” are of growing up and still trying to find out what being an adult actually is, and will make you laugh and cry, and perhaps even give you a glimpse into a world that might no longer exist, but shouldn’t be forgotten. These beautiful stories are for anyone who has ever set out on a journey to define what “home” means to them.
You can find out more about him at apsethegate.ca. Shawn has been a regular participant at Ottawa Story teller’s monthly (un)told storytelling events. He also has a monthly podcast called “Shawn Anthony’s Story Shop, Gas Bar & Take Out”, with stories shared in the style he heard them in his Uncle’s shop back on Fogo Island, Newfoundland.
 
In Shawn's first ‘call in’ show, he will be giving away 1 free ticket to his upcoming Signature Series Event (value $20) which because of COVID protocol will be live stream broadcast (https://www.ottawastorytellers.ca/apse-the-gate). The winner of the ticket will be emailed a unique link the day of the performance and will be able to watch on their device from the comfort of their home.
 
UPCOMING EVENT:
Ottawa Signature Series is an annual showcase of Ottawa premier storytellers. Shawn’s performance will be held on February 25, 2021 at 7:30 EST. Tickets available at the following link: https://www.ottawastorytellers.ca/apse-the-gate
 
Contact info: Shawn Anthony: shawnivananthony@gmail.com 613-612-2161
