Watch the National Storytelling Festival Livestream!

Can’t make it to this year’s National Storytelling Festival? We’ve got you covered. On Friday, October 2nd, we’re streaming video live from our Family Tent so you can join us in Jonesborough from wherever you happen to be.

The live broadcast of family-friendly storytelling will run all day, 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Whether you want to throw a viewing party, check in on your phone during lunch, or binge watch the whole thing from the comfort of your couch, our master storytellers are here for you (and your friends and your family and your colleagues and your students and…well, you get the idea).

It’s easy, it’s entertaining, and it’s free! Just visit https://livestream.com/accounts/323851/storyfest any time during the livestream on Friday, October 2nd. You can also use the hashtag #storyfest on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to connect with our audience in Jonesborough and other people tuning in from around the globe.

For more information, including a complete schedule of performers, please click here.

The National Storytelling Festival livestream has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Niswonger Foundation. The Family Tent is sponsored by Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort.

Book Launch : Brought to Light: More Stories of Forgotten Women

This is a reminder that the sequel to In the Wings, which is entitled Brought to Light: More Stories of Forgotten Women, is being launched Wed. Oct. 21st at 7 pm at the Carnegie Gallery in Dundas (please see the attached poster).  This book is also edited by Bernadette Rule.

It would be wonderful to see you there.  Many of the writers will be there to present their forgotten women.  I have a story of Catharine Coffin (of the Underground Rail Road) in this book, and will be one of the readers.

I hope you can join us for what I know will be a fascinating evening.

Please share this with anyone you think might be interested.  All are welcome.
