Nationwide Celebration of Stories Returns to Juneau

Juneau Empire (Juneau, Alaska) , November 18, 2004

Summary:

Becky Bear, Anne C. Fuller, Ishmael Hope, John Neary and others will tell stories during the two-day Tellabration event, 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, and 11 a.m. to noon Saturday morning, Nov. 20, at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

This year's theme is "wild places." Friday's readings will be more complicated stories for adults and kids of all ages. Saturday's stories are for kids of all ages.

"We have stories of people who live in wild places, and stories of people being rescued from wild places," said Fuller, who helped organize the event.

"It's just a time to tell stories for the sake of telling stories," she said. "We forget up here that we have so many folks who live and tell stories. Down south, it's unheard of. Up here, you go out on a fishing boat and they're going to tell stories."
