New Book by Susie Stone Chidlovski Is Out Now


It’s official now – the new book “Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity, Jig” by Susie Stone Chidlovski is out now!

I know a lot of great storytellers.

Out of all of them, my wife is definitely on the top of the list of all storytellers.

For years now, I’ve been listening to all these fascinating stories about a small town in the Midwest where everybody knows each other, about her family and friends, about local theater and diner, about small town politics and sometimes big town politics, about local animal shelter and school football team…

There were literally thousands of stories told at different gatherings we were at. Everybody loved them and always wanted to hear more.

One day we asked her a question, what if you write a book based on these stories.

It was a challenging task.

Oral stories and written stories are two very different types of storytelling. What is fascinating to listen to is not that fascinating to read on paper. And the other way around.

She spent about 3 years working on this – trying to record her voice on paper. The result is the book called “Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity, Jig” which was just published a week ago in March.

More info about the book and how to order it is available here .
