It’s already starting to feel like the season where you want to cuddle up with a good book….or a fine bunch of storytellers. Host Gary Green is an historical whiz with an humorous wit! You’re sure to delight in his captivating tales founded on fascinating pieces of local history and myth, and often packing a fine pun. We’re also seeking excited participants for the open mic. Whether it’s your first time or you’re a seasoned teller, we welcome you to share you tales. And as always, we need warm and lovely listeners.
Whether you are there to listen, to tell or to gather up your courage to tell a story, we’d love to see you.
