Bay Area Storytelling Festival: The west coast’s oldest storytelling festival (since 1982!) has a new location – the Orinda Community Center- and a new date – April 24,25, 26, 2015! Featured tellers include Tim Tingle, an Oklahoma Choctaw teller and author of several children’s books, including Crossing Bok Chitto and When Turtle Grew Feathers, Dublin-born Clare Murphy, Nashville singer/songwriter Kate Campbell, and special guest Hawaiian performance poet Kealoha, founder of Youth Speaks Hawaii.
Woven in with the storytelling concerts, (including one for kids on Sunday), are workshops, music, storyswaps, and the chance to win a handmade quilt and other prizes in a grand raffle. The Orinda Community Center is easily walkable from BART, and located just off Highway 24. You may come for one program, several, or the whole weekend! The Bay Area Storytelling Festival is a project of the Storytelling Association of Alta California and complete information is available at their website: http://www.bayareastorytelling.org.
