Story House Ithaca takes to the waves for this sunset Story Boat cruise with local poet and performance storyteller Jay Leeming. The venue is the MV Teal, the lovely wooden tour boat operated by Discover Cayuga Lake. Admission is pay-what-you-can. Reservations are required. Please book here.   

Jay Leeming has spent years bringing the power of the spoken word to audiences in theaters, schools, libraries, and National Parks. He is author of three collections of poetry, the creator of the Crane Bag Podcast, the former editor of the journal Rowboat: Poetry in Translation, and the recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. 

More information about his work as well as recordings of his performances of The Epic of Gilgamesh, “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” numerous Norse myths and the Odyssey can be found at

This event is made possible in part with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants program from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of the office of the Governor and NYS Legislature, and from Tompkins County, administered by the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
