George Schricker is a songwriter, storyteller, and poet from Indiana. He has performed his original music at The Chicago Field Museum, with the Elgin Symphony Orchestra, and across the island of Newfoundland.
George has given over 2000 performances in schools, libraries, and at festivals. He is known for his unique storytelling workshops which combine a variety of art forms and are cooperative and synergistic in their design.
He continues to produce songs, the latest of which is based on the brilliant book, "While In Darkness There Is Light," by Louella Bryant. The book is concerned with the life, and subsequent death, of Charlie Dean (Howard Dean's brother) and the wonderful adventures of expatriates on the loose in Queensland during the end of the Vietnam war.
In 2007, his song, "Losing Track of Time," was mentioned in the New York Times and his children's song, "Archaeopteryx," was nominated for Children's Song of the Year.
Mr. Schricker is presently working on a number of longer writing projects for young adults and middle grade children.
