Storytelling festival returns to Palace Nov. 1 and 2
Storytelling is an art. Storytellers perfect their craft just as a seamstress improves with each garment that she sews. Just as a patron walks away with a painting to display in his home, each member of the audience takes home a memory, a memory to keep inside and play in their mind’s eye. Or to share with others who appreciate a good story. Maybe it’s the tale of a man’s life, a child’s toy or a lost love. Whatever sparks the interest can vary from listener to listener. Storytelling is not only an audio experience; it’s visual, as well.
Storytelling is a legacy. It’s been around for hundreds of years. It’s especially precious to the people of the Upper Cumberland, rich in history and passed down from generation to generation.
