Festival Becoming Word-of-Mouth Hit

The Montgomery Advertiser (Montgomery, AL) , September 23, 2004


The third annual Telling Alabama's Stories, a storytelling festival sponsored by the Alabama Center for the Book and Old Alabama Town, is taking place this Saturday.

Old Alabama Town's Betty Pinkston said the festival continues to grow:

"The first year, we had around 150 people, and last year, we had about 800. We hope for at least that number this year. It's a really fun festival for all ages -- from the little, bitty kids to senior citizens. Everybody will enjoy it because a lot of these storytellers are just a hoot."
