If you're a fan of radio storytelling programs like The Moth Radio Hour, you won't want to miss a special event taking place Saturday December 7, 2019 at 6:30 PM in Bakersfield. The Beale Memorial Library, in association with Bakersfield Toastmasters Clubs and Valley Public Radio will present a storyteller's showcase - an evening of true stories, told before a live audience. The theme of the event will be "Miles to Go Before I Sleep."
This free event will be an opportunity to hear Kern County storytellers share their craft, and you can participate as well. In addition to the December 7th performance event, the Beale Memorial Library will also host free storytelling workshops to help participants learn the art of storytelling on October 19th and November 16th at 4:30 PM. Participants for the December 7th event are encouraged, but not required to participate in the workshops. Valley Public Radio will record the event for potential broadcast at a later date. For information about the event, and how you can participate, call the Beale Memorial Library at 661-868-0701.
