Story Fest 2006 , a "Tellabration"

The Friends of the Fiske Free Library will present their 6th annual Story Fest on Saturday, November 18, 2006 from 10:00 am to 3 pm. Featured storytellers are Simon Brooks, Angela Klingler, Matt Krug and Bineke Oort. Story Fest is a free family event and open to children and adults.

Story Fest was designed to showcase the talents of storytellers from New Hampshire and Vermont. It was held in October for four years, but in 2005 it was moved to the November weekend that has been designated for a world-wide storytelling celebration known as "Tellabration."

"Tellabration" was started in 1988 by J.G. Pinkerton, a Connecticut yarn spinner who envisioned an evening of adult storytelling across the state. That year storytelling was held simultaneously in six Connecticut towns and the following year Texas and Missouri joined in. Since then "Tellabration" has expanded to include a weekend of storytelling around the world, at schools, libraries, museums, elder hostels, and even on trains and planes.

Story Fest will take place inside the Fiske Free Library, 108 Broad Street, Claremont, New Hampshire.
