Unchained-The Heart Tour 2012 featuring Neil Gaiman, Edgar Oliver & Peter Aguero
In September of 2012, the Unchained Tour will load up its ’72 Bluebird school bus with four world-celebrated raconteurs and take to the highways. The tour’s mission will be to celebrate independent bookstores, and to spread the message that storytelling should be the heart, the vital center of every community.
Confirmed storytellers include Neil Gaiman, an English author of four novels, including Coraline, and the recipient of a Newbury Medal and Carnegie Medal in Literature, among other prizes; Edgar Oliver, Savannah-born playwright and raconteur star of the Edinburgh Festival; Peter Aguero, a multi-talented artist currently hosting The Moth and leading NYC's improvised storytelling rock band, The BTK Band.
The 2012 Heart-Shaped Tour, named for its heart-shaped route—is set to roll through Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina from September 13-22, 2012. Performers and crew will be journeying on an old Blue Bird school bus that has been painted with scenes and quotes from the 2010 stories.
The Unchained Tour is the brainchild of novelist George Dawes Green. In 1997, Mr. Green founded the Moth, a series of storytelling nights in New York City.
