Tarrant Area Guild of Storytellers (TAGS)
will host our 2018 Summer Conference.
The conference will be in Fort Worth, Texas in June, 2018!
The Tarrant Area Guild of Storytellers (TAGS) invites you to Fort Worth, June 29, 30 and July 1st for the Texas Storytelling 2018 Conference - It’s a Family Reunion: Tales of Kin and Kindred.
Donald Davis, recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award as well as the Lifetime achievement Award from National Storytelling Network, will be here to urge us to craft our own family stories through example, keynote and workshop. Donald is the author of 18 books and more than 40 original recordings. He is also among the most popular figures on today’s storytelling circuit. www.ddavisstoryteller.com.
Also joining us in Fort Worth is Pippa White. Pippa has told at Timpanogos Storytelling Conference and at the Kansas Storytelling Festival. She presents historical figures so intimately they are like family. Among her many presentations are “The Story of the Orphan Train”, “Voices from Ellis Island”, “Far As the Eye Can See” this last about the people of the prairie--those who crossed it (the pioneers), those who settled it, (the homesteaders), those who lost it the Native Americans) and those who endured it (the brave people of the Dust Bowl.)
Come and join us as we learn from these two extraordinary storytellers! The location will be at the First United Methodist Church in Fort Worth. This is great for two reasons. First of all Donald Davis was a Methodist minister and second of all because this is where Tom McDermott and wife Linda are both pastors. More details to come!
