SHERMAN, Conn. – The JCC of Sherman is hosting “Tellabration,” an evening of stories at 6 p.m. Saturday.
Two professional storytellers, Ann Shapiro and Carolyn Stearns, will entertain the audience with stories, ethnic folktales and legends.
A Tellabration is a celebration of the oral tradition of storytelling. Tellabration is a storytelling phenomenon made up of dozens of storytelling happenings across the world. Its purpose is to introduce adults and children to the pleasures of storytelling.
Oral storytelling is an ancient art distinctly different from stories read in books. The first Tellabration was celebrated in Connecticut, and November is Tellabration Month.
This program is designed for a family audience; however, adults unaccompanied by a child also are welcome. Bring your child, grandchild or come by yourself and enjoy an evening of stories.
Cost is $5 for children ages 6-12, $10 for adults and $25 for a family of four or more.
The JCC of Sherman is at 9 Route 39, Sherman.
