It's only been eleven months since Karla Campillo-Soto told her story at the September 2019 Disaster show, but trust us, it's worth hearing again. Using her experience with the 1985 Mexico City earthquake, she tells a gripping tale of family, resilience, and being okay when disaster strikes. From Karla's Odyssey bio:
Born in Mexico in 1973, Karla Campillo-Soto came to the U.S. in her early twenties as a teacher. Karla’s love for storytelling started when she had the opportunity to listen to a nationally recognized storyteller who came to her school …and it was love at first sound. Karla currently resides in Douglas with her husband and her three children. She is a big fan of Tucson Tellers of Tales and has had the opportunity to tell her stories at the National Library of Congress.
This story was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at Sea of Glass Center for the Arts in Tucson, AZ, on September 5th, 2019, and was curated by Molly McCloy and Roscoe Mutz. It was originally released on September 27th, 2019, as part of the episode September 2019: Disaster. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com.
