The Evanston Public Library Storytelling Festival brings inspired storytelling to the Library and other downtown locations for a full, fall weekend of compelling stories and community listening and sharing. The nation’s most vibrant storytellers are joined in this festival by favorites from the burgeoning Chicago scene, passionate student voices from Northwestern University and Evanston schools, along with workshops, panel discussions, and open mic opportunities for all.
From personal true stories to folktales, from ghost stories to the edgy fringe, from Spoken Word to tales from around the world, this festival promises something for all. Bring the kids, bring your friends, and open yourself up to the art and heart of storytelling.
