Tales / Stories Begin at 7:00pm
*** Featuring ***

Susan Adams has been a Children's Librarian and a Storyteller for 30 years. In her early days she thought she might choose to be a lawyer, but then decided that there was far too little humor in that profession. An acting class revealed her theatricality, and a storytelling class showed her the pathways to the words she needed. She decided to try to develop the imaginative energies of young people and to encourage their laughter with her stories. Her library career has taken her to Washington, DC, Asheville, NC, and Raleigh. She has been involved, as a teller and as an organizer, in the Wake County Storytelling Festival for 23 of its 33 year history. Susan's storytelling specialty is "Fractured Fairytales" such as Rindercella and Loldygocks and the Bee Threars. "I believe that listening to stories lets your imagination fly, and laughter energizes the body and soul."

Drew Bridges describes himself as an "early career storyteller." He is well known around the Wake Forest area, having performed at charity events and at local events including Herbfest and Christmas Week Events. Drew loves the spoken word, a more personal form of entertainment for today's multimedia whiz-bang technology world. His stories include original works and some taken from folk tales. Recent activities include the planning committee for the annual Forest of Wake Storytelling Festival, where he masterfully serves as MC.

Gale Buck can be found on many stages from Libraries in Wilson, Smithfield, and Wake County to campgrounds in the Virginia Mountains. This year he will be introducing a new line of Scottish stories at the Scotland County Highland Games. Winner of the 2014 Bold-Faced Liars' Showdown and 2015 South Carolina State Liars Champion, Gale shares his talents freely as facilitator for Village Storytellers which meets the First Tuesday of the month at The Sertoma Arts Center in Raleigh, NC.

This is a Family Event but no child care is provided.
