Blackstone Library Presents Tellabration!
Posted on October 16th, 2015

Tellabration is a mammoth storytelling event - and that's no Tall Tale! It's a storytelling phenomenon, made up of dozens of storytelling happenings all over the world. Its purpose is to introduce adults, as well as children, to the pleasures of the oral art of storytelling.  It is one of the programs offered by The Connecticut Storytelling Center, based at Connecticut College in New London.

The Blackstone Memorial Library, located at 758 Main Street, Branford, CT will host a Tellabration for families on Saturday, November 7th at 11:00 a.m. For more information contact Carly Lemire at 203-488-1441 X323.
M.J. Moriarty will be telling stories and leading the audience in theater games and improvisations based on the stories.  This promises to be a lot of fun for all ages.  No prior experience is necessary.  Come and expect some storytelling skill building and some good laughs.
