Who is Leslie Perry?
Storyteller, theatre artist and community activist is the best way to describe Leslie. He began his artistic life in theatre, directing and writing plays in many colleges and universities. But storytelling has been his greatest love and he has shared his brand of stories for over 30 years, performing throughout California and around the United States.
In 2009 Leslie was diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Never one to back down to a challenge, Leslie responded by organizing a fundraiser for the ALS Foundation and writing two books.
In 2010 he released “The Story Man,” a collection of autobiographical stories and plays, with some fictional pieces mixed in as well.
In January 2012 he released “Wednesdays With Leslie,” a collaborative effort between Leslie and Kalen Tolces featuring vivid stories from both storytellers.
As always, Leslie continues to inspire us all with his courage, kindness and strength. Now we invite you to explore the rest of the site in order to learn more about Leslie and Kalen, and their amazing new book!
