Last year Peggy Shumaker and Joe Usibelli came to us and said they wanted to name Storyknife’s main house for Eva Saulitis, teacher, poet and their friend, who died earlier that year.

In 2016 Storyknife hosted its inaugural Fellow, Kim Steutermann Rogers, for the month of September. Kim arrived on September 1st and departed on September 30th.
