2016_taelen_thomasTAELEN THOMAS creates and performs biographical dramas in which he “brings to life” historical personalities including Mark Twain, Theodore Roosevelt, Jack London, John Steinbeck, Robert Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson, Dylan Thomas, and Ogden Nash. A master of the oral tradition, he has performed in theatres, universities, public schools, banquet halls, and private homes throughout America. The most recent edition of Taelen’s own poetry is entitled “Inside of a Galloping Buffalo”.  He has also recorded a powerful CD of the poetry of Robinson Jeffers.

Taelen was officially honored last year as a “Living Legend” in the excellent and well-researched book, “Legendary Locals of Carmel-by-the-Sea”
