A little about our storyteller, Geraldine Buckley:

With her trademark wit, warmth and humor, internationally known, award-winning storyteller and educator Geraldine Buckley has been involved in storytelling, public speaking, storytelling workshop classes, and coaching for over thirty years in the US, Canada, England, Holland, South Africa, Spain and New Zealand.

Known primarily for personal stories that make people laugh and think, Geraldine teaches workshops, and performs in conferences, colleges, schools, corporations, and house-concerts. She has appeared as a featured teller in festivals throughout the US, including twice at the National Storytelling Festival, in Jonesborough, TN., and the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, Utah.

Until January 2010, Geraldine was the Chaplain at the largest men’s prison in Maryland, an adventure that gave her many stories. While continuing to tell secular stories and teach storytelling workshops, in April 2019 she became an Intern Chaplain at her local hospital. This was followed by a full year’s assignment as a Resident hospital Chaplain, gaining her professional chaplaincy qualifications.

Geraldine has a habit of stumbling into inadvertent adventures, which gives her much story material. While working at the hospital, the Covid-19 pandemic engulfed the world. She started to write a series on Facebook called Pandemic Parables that gave an insight into the world of a frontline Covid hospital where few visitors ever venture. It was very well received and was turned into a 70-minute show which had its world premiere at the 2020 National Storytelling Virtual Festival. It is this story that she will tell live to a multi synagogue audience on February 21st.

Geraldine is frequently heard on Sirius radio, and is the recipient of three gold awards from Storytelling World as well as many other accolades. Geraldine is an ordained minister, has an MA in Communication from Regent University, and lives in Frederick, Maryland, 45 minutes from Washington DC.
