THREE RIVERS STORYTELLING FESTIVAL
Friday and Saturday, August 6 and 7
The tenth annual Three Rivers Storytelling Festival will be held on Friday and Saturday, August 6 and 7, on the library grounds.
This year’s featured tellers include Tim Tingle, an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and a frequent speaker at tribal events, West Virginia native Granny Sue Holstein, who tells and sings stories in the old-time front porch style, traveling storyteller Kate Danaher, and local favorite Joe Wos, who has been combining storytelling and cartooning into a very non-traditional approach for more than a quarter of a century.
The Festival begins with Kid’s Day events on Friday morning and afternoon, followed by an evening concert with all of the featured tellers at 7:30pm. Then it’s time for Ghost Stories at 10:00pm. Saturday’s schedule includes individual storytelling sessions on two stages throughout the day beginning at 10:00am with both local and featured tellers, followed by an evening concert with our featured tellers at 7:30pm.
Other Festival events include Stories and Lunch for Seniors at noon on Friday, where you can enjoy a box lunch and stories for just $10. Also scheduled on Friday are workshops with our featured tellers during the day, priced at $35 apiece. Tickets for the lunch and the workshops are available in the administration office on the lower level of the library weekdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
