Tale of Two Husbands

I am traveling for Thanksgiving so no lengthy post today. I am sure most of my readers are eager to enter the arms of their loved ones.

One of the small pleasures I receiving during my morning commute is catching the broadcast from StoryCorps. If you don’t know about StoryCorps, they set up booths across the country and get people to interview each other about events in their lives. All the stories are archived in the Library of Congress.

This week two guys who were married to the same woman talk about their relationship after the woman suggested that she and her second husband have Thanksgiving at her ex-husband’s house…

It is a good story for sharing at Thanksgiving. Hope you and your family create some good Thanksgiving stories this year.

About Joe Patti

I have been writing Butts in the Seats (BitS) on topics of arts and cultural administration since 2004 (yikes!). Given the ever evolving concerns facing the sector, I have yet to exhaust the available subject matter. In addition to BitS, I am a founding contributor to the ArtsHacker (artshacker.com) website where I focus on topics related to boards, law, governance, policy and practice.

I am also an evangelist for the effort to Build Public Will For Arts and Culture being helmed by Arts Midwest and the Metropolitan Group. (http://www.creatingconnection.org/about/)

My most recent role was as Executive Director of the Grand Opera House in Macon, GA.

Among the things I am most proud are having produced an opera in the Hawaiian language and a dance drama about Hawaii's snow goddess Poli'ahu while working as a Theater Manager in Hawaii. Though there are many more highlights than there is space here to list.
