Storytelling Festival Goes Folk

Join us to see Grammy award winning Okee Dokee Brothers perform this Sunday, April 14, at 3 p.m. in the "park" at Richland Library--10,000 square feet of padded astroturf with an outdoor stage, bistro tables and chairs, outdoor quilts, hula hoops, and more as part of the 27th Augusta Baker's Dozen Storytelling Celebration.

Have you ever witnessed the power of storytelling?  Mesmerized audiences can  be transported far away, lost in a story, just by the sound of a voice.  Come witness this magical experience for yourself at the library’s Augusta Baker’s Dozen storytelling celebration in April.   Join us as we welcome Connie Regan-Blake, one of the nation’s most celebrated storytellers.  She brings wisdom, humor and drama to the stage, drawing in listeners with her engaging humor and Southern charm.  She has been a guest on ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN, and NPR’s All Things Considered.  Connie has performed at the nation’s top folk music and storytelling festivals in Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.

Richland Library’s annual storytelling celebration honors the works and achievements of nationally-known author and storyteller, Augusta Baker.  Read more>>
