Tellabration! is an annual world-wide storytelling event. Every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving storytellers gather in numerous places in many countries to spin their tales and listeners gather to appreciate this ancient art form.
In 2014 the town of Madison, Florida held its own event for the first time. Local storyteller Wanda Violet pulled together the first local Tellabration! event and “B” O’Toole of O’Toole’s Herb Farm provided the venue inside her Heartspace building.
The Old Lady does love a good story! From the comedic origin of turkey dressing to a legend about a dragon who learns how stories can heal old enmities, the Old Lady took them all in with open-mouthed wonder.
She particularly enjoyed Mattie Ann Barnes and Abby Ratliff, both young local ladies who are beginners but who already “get” this storytelling business.
Wanda Violet wants to start a storytelling group in Madison. If this interests you email her at email@example.com
