Evanston Public Library Storytelling Festival Rocks the Talent

Discover the World Through the Power of Storytelling

The rich art of storytelling returns to multiple venues in Evanston with the third annual Evanston Public Library Storytelling Festival the weekend of October 6 to 8.  Five nationally known storytellers will entertain audiences with true and imaginative tales during this free event that is open to all. Young, locally grown storytellers from District 65, ETHS, and Northwestern University also will take to the stage and add their unique voices. This free festival offers diverse perspectives and unique voices brought together to meet the diverse expectations and needs of Evanstonians. Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy and benefit from the many and varied forms of literacy.
