Cavort: to engage in joyful activity; to have lively, boisterous fun


This what the Tucson Weekly said when they highlighted our storytelling event as one of their coveted “Pics of the Week”:

Local “mischief makers” Kaitlin Meadows and Penelope Starr will put on a literary performance full of inquiry and illumination. Antigone Books, 411 N. Fourth Ave., will host the event on Friday, April 24, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The theme of the night is balance. The performers will explore how to manage asking, receiving, and learning to love what you have and get in a whimsical style that involves surprises and audience involvement. Both Meadows and Starr have extensive experience as storytellers and should engage the community in a fun and thought-provoking performance.

K&P-1 And, YIKES! did we have fun! Thanks to all our fabulous peeps who showed up to share the evening of cavorting with us…


I’m was thrilled how many old friends came to laugh along with us!



This is our fourth year of sharing these storytelling ventures at Antigone…and I love my side-kick–

Penelope Starr K&P-15

is the amazing creator of Odyssey Storytelling . She was one of the first wonderfully creative souls I met when I arrived in Tucson a dozen years ago–and before I knew what was happening, she had me performing as an Odyssey storyteller…it’s been a crazy, wonderful ride since then!

Every year we find a way to take our dog & pony show (more like a Thelma & Louise movie actually!) to Antigone.

Have I raved about Antigone in these posts lately?…Antigone is one of only a handful of independent bookstores left in America–woman owned, a landmark off Tucson’s famous Fourth Avenue, and the most magical place to find the books, periodicals, journals, cards, and just plain “cool stuff” in Tucson.

I LOVE their kids section and the “Staff Picks” are always engaging and inspiring. Any book you hear about on NPR (or anywhere else) they’ll order for you. And if they don’t have it, they are gracious enough to send folks right down the street to my OTHER favorite bookstore, The Book Stop, also woman owned and in business for 48 years–AGAINST ALL THE ODDS!

you can do this

PLEASE support these fabulous Tucson bookstores–please don’t buy all your books from Amazon or other syndicates! These are our LOCAL businesses–with real,  hardworking, LOCAL employees who care–who live and breathe books–and who encourage local characters like Penelope and I to speak freely and share joyously.

Here is Antigone’s Debbie Cross introducing us…(thanks Debbie!)


We had a fabulous time telling our stories! Thanks to those of you who joined us…and thanks for supporting Antigone (and The Book Stop)…

CAVORT every danged chance you get! It’s soooo much fun!

P.S. May Cottage Class schedules are out–click on the tab at the top of the page…I’m especially proud to share my first evening series–check it out!

Happy Cavorting!

Love From Your Mistress of Merriment,
