Bio:Jim May was born in Spring Grove, Illinois where his ancestors first settled in the 1840s. Raised in this small German-Catholic farming community, his stories resonate with the rural voices of the Illinois prairie. His relatives spent time "visiting" and telling stories as an integral part of daily life - as a means of weaving the social fabric of the community. As an Emmy award-winning, and world traveling freelance storytelling and author, his humorous and heart felt stories not only entertain but present an art form ideal for the grounding and healing that is needed in complex, modern times.
