Opening the evening is a Friday Night Family Fun session featuring Lawrence, Kansas, storyteller Priscilla Howe, a performer with a bagful of puppets and a head full of stories. It’s followed by a 7 p.m. ghost-tales session – recommended for ages 10 and up – with three visiting storytellers: Scott Whitehair, who has brought his dynamic mix of vulnerability, humor, and insight to venues across the globe; historical character interpreter Sheila Arnold Jones; and Adam Booth, whose tales blend traditional folklore, music, and an awareness of contemporary Appalachia.
Co-sponsored by Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods. For more details on the Storytelling Celebration, visit mcckc.org.edu/storytelling.
