Tales / Stories Begin at 7:00pm

Ron Jones likes to tell people that he grew up on a North Carolina dairy farm in a whole family of storytellers. Being a part of a large family of six children, parents, grandmothers, and extended family members of aunts, uncles, and many cousins- there was always time for a story and a willing storyteller nearby. Among his earliest memories, Ron says, are gatherings on the front porch or in the yard under sprawling oaks listening to stories. As a founding board member and past president of the North Carolina Storytelling Guild, he has worked closely with other storytellers throughout the state to promote and support storytellers and the art of storytelling.

Sam Pearsall retired in January 2013 after serving 35 years as an ecologist; working with conservation organizations in Maine, Tennessee, Hawaii, and North Carolina. Now living in Raleigh, NC with his wife Linda, who has nicknamed him "The Help," Sam pursues his hobbies including traveling, storytelling, gardening, hand drumming, making fused glass, peddling, paddling, perambulating, and puttering. He does a lot of puttering! His stories are all true tales and tall tales. The former are all based on personal experiences, and so are the latter.

Janis Epton makes her debut presentation at Front Porch and is an avid member of Village Storytellers. She brings stories from life in out of the way places and a career in the world of art.
