Storytelling in the Canyon
Join Renee Morrison, Little River Canyon Field School, and other Alabama storytellers for International TELLABRATION!! Storytelling in the Canyon, on November 22 at the Little River Canyon Center (Hwy 35 east of Fort Payne) from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
This free event is part of a worldwide event devoted to storytelling that has been taking place annually for ten years. Endorsed by the National Storytelling Network, this grass-roots movement began in Connecticut in 1988 when J.G. Pinkerton sought to build community through storytelling. From six Connecticut locations that first year, the event spread regionally the following year, to the nation in 1990 and, finally, in 1995 became the International Tellabration! According to the Tellabration! website, in 1997 every continent but Antarctica hosted a Tellabration! event. The event is usually held on the Saturday night before Thanksgiving in the U.S.
This event is free and open to the public.
