|These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:|
The Plumas Tale Spinners have developed a family-friendly storytelling event designed to inspire and entice a broader interest in performances of the spoken word and inspiring more folks to become tellers of tales.
People of all ages and interests are invited to attend the second annual Story Fest, 1 – 5 p.m., Nov. 6.
The event location has been changed to the Greenville High School cafeteria due to the scheduled opening of the Indian Valley Community Center.
The program for the day will begin with story-making and storytelling workshops offered at two levels from 1 – 2 p.m.: an adult session with Mary Gay Ducey and a children's session with Margaret Garcia.
Local tellers from the Tale Spinners monthly meeting sessions perform 2 – 3:45 p.m.
Featured local tellers will be Pat Beck, Ginger Gramm, Sherry Kumler, Victoria Metcalf, Bill Powers, Erin Roth, Trish Taylor, David Van Winkle and Wayne Vinson.
Storyteller Mary Gay Ducey will perform at 4 p.m. Ducey learned about stories in the best way possible — from family. Descended from Southern women who treasured a sassy mouth, she grew up in New Orleans with its rituals and play.
She now lives in Berkeley and has performed throughout the United States, Canada and Ireland. She has appeared twice at the National Storytelling Festival and on “Mister Roger's Neighborhood.” Ducey is also a children’s librarian in Oakland.
Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for children under 12 or only $10 for the whole family. Baked goods and beverages will be on sale throughout the afternoon. All proceeds will support the third annual Story Fest.
