The White Bear (first ten minutes)
This is the beginning of the 30-minute folk tale "The White Bear,"
a selection from Tim Jennings & Leanne Ponder's award-winning CD,
"WORLD TALES Live at Bennington College,"
recorded at the Upstairs Cafe in 1999.
The CD is about an hour long,
and in addition to this story includes the macabre,
beautiful, disturbingly funny classic,
"The Juniper Tree,"
and the little-known Indian charmer,
It can be bought here,
and can be made available to
reviewers and prospective sponsors
(You may need to

"Your charming, witty, and beguiling tale, "The White Bear," was one of the highlights of our storytelling festival, marked by impeccable timing and strongly drawn characters. Thank you for your committment and artistry."
