Tell Me a Story

Someone said that “Once upon a time lasts forever.” Humans have been telling stories since the beginning of language. Stories performed with hand gestures, face expressions and voice modulations can enchant as well as entertain.
Evolution has given humans a brain that thinks in narratives all day long. Scientists have proven our brains become more active when listening to a good story. Each listener turns the story into “their” story by visualizing the words with their own ideas and existing experiences.
The community will have a chance to share in the joy of listening to stories, tales, yarns, fairy tales and even downright lies on January 30, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The event will be at the General Gomez Art and Event Center, 808 Lincoln Way, Auburn, California.
Auburn Winter Storytelling Fest is a project of the Foothill Storytelling Guild with the goal to engage the community through stories. The day long free event will feature tellers presenting a children’s program in the morning, a workshop, an open telling and a Liar’s Contest in the afternoon and an evening program featuring professional tellers.
