Tell Your Tale

. January 21, 2014.

Personal storytelling is on the rise. Judging by the success of radio programs like NPR’s Snap Judgment, and the longevity of events like the Ark’s 27th annual Storytelling Festival, it’s obvious that the public appetite is whetted for real stories by real people. This year’s fest boasts two national storytellers: Donna Washington (at right), who meditates on life with children, and Tim Tiller, whose stories come framed in his Choctaw Native American Heritage. Local storyteller Jane Fink, who performed several times around Ann Arbor in 2013, rounds out the line-up.

Saturday, February 15, 7:30pm. $20. The Ark, 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1800. theark.org
