Our March meeting was held at the Crown Center on March 25. It was nice to break bread together and have a short business meeting to discuss the group. A vote was made to once again give significant support to the St. Louis Storytelling Festival, and a check was hand-delivered to the UMSL campus today.
Upcoming – the Story Swap event is scheduled for Monday, April 8th at the McClay Branch of the St. Charles County Library system. Please join area storytellers Mary Garrett and Michael Bennett (and many others) to hear and tell stories for all ages. Folk tales, personal stories, myths – all are welcome! We meet in the library conference room at 6:30 PM on the second Monday of each month. The address is 2760 McClay Road, St. Charles MO 63303-5427.
Also coming up is one of the premier storytelling festivals in the nation – the St. Louis Storytelling Festival. There’s way more information than can be listed here, so please check out their website at http://stlstorytellingfestival.org/. The Festival runs from May 1-4, 2013, at a multitude of locations all over the St. Louis metro area.
