Nationally renowned for storytelling performances by literary giants like John Steinbeck and Ray Bradbury, Carol Birch is “refreshingly eloquent; dramatic but never overtly theatrical”.
In her sure voice, literature’s appeal becomes appropriately conversational and intimate. A university instructor, an award-winning author, recording artist, director and storyteller, Birch received the Circle of Excellence Award from peers for being a master artist who sets the standards. She’s performed across America at conferences, universities, and festivals - including eight appearances at the National Storytelling Festival in Tennessee. She’s traveled on invitational tours to Australia, Canada, Europe, and Singapore. Media appearances include ABC's Nightline, The Morning Show on CBS, and National Public Radio.  “Like a very dry martini” Carol Birch’s telling is “smooth, intoxicating and little dangerous."

Carol is coming to Unbound to perform her celebrated interpretation of John Steinbeck’s THE GRAPES OF WRATH, which transforms this seminal work into an exhilarating revelation.  Almost eighty years later, the novel resonates with themes ripped from today’s headlines, ricocheting from head to heart to fists thrown in the air!
