What is storytelling? Simply put it's timeless entertainment. Storytelling is an interactive way of using words and actions to tell a story and engage a listener's imagination. A storytelling festival features performances and workshops from a variety of professional storytellers while also offering story slams-a chance for amateurs to tell a tale. In 2017, we will welcome back master storyteller Donald Davis! Our featured storytellers also include Adam Booth, Geraldine Buckley, and Michael Reno Harrell. These talented storytellers have entertained audiences across the country, and we are excited to bring them to Culpeper Tells. It is the Board's vision and hope that Culpeper Tells...a Festival of Words will become a key element of the Friends of the Culpeper County Library fundraising efforts, providing a funding source for a diverse mixture of library programs.

Cost: $30 - $55 (children 12 and under FREE with accompanying adult) Tickets: online at http://culpepertells.com/buy-tickets/
