Do we LOVE storytelling, or what.? This is the perfect month to share a story with someone you love--family member, friend or sweetheart. Nothing brings people closer together than story. Our recent 5th Annual Clearfield Storytelling Festival was a huge success. We moved to a larger venue this year and still filled the room. Everyone felt the warmth and magic of story on a cold winter evening. The audience was mesmerized by the tellers, who ranged in age from 10 years to....well... older. Even the youngest audience members were enthralled with the presentations and at the end we were well filled with story, memories and things to contemplate for later. We had a great mix of stories--cowboy poetry to folktale to personal story to historical tale. If you want to experience to totally new type of entertainment--one for the whole family and even the ADULTS--look up a storytelling event in your area. Caution: story-listening is addictive. You will begin to want more and more of it. Happy February!
