Tellebration

. May 17, 2012.

Since the first people gathered around a fire to share their tales, the art of a good story told well has been fundamental to the human experience. Join the Ann Arbor Storytellers’ Guild in celebrating this ancient beautiful craft, as they present this year’s Tellebration, on Saturday, November 12. A worldwide event that’s been held yearly since 1988, Tellebration is “an evening of stories for grownups,” featuring six performers from the Storytellers’ Guild, along with host, singer-songwriter and guest storyteller Jeanne Mackey. (The event is suitable for ages 14 and up, but there’s also a Family Tellebration for all ages on Sunday, November 13.) $10. 7:30pm.  2309 Packard Rd.
