October 18-20, 2019 All Day
The first annual Yorklyn Storytelling Festival features a lineup of world-renowned storytellers, including:
Andy Offutt Irwin
The Reverend Robert Jones
Michael Reno Harrell
The Twin Poets (The Poets Laureate of the State of Delaware)
Stories are essential to our understanding of ourselves. They define us. They connect us. They knit us together, side-by-side and down through the generations. This festival is a celebration of the genre; of the stories that enhance our lives and expand our literacy and language, our reading and writing, our history and culture, our arts and entertainment.
The festival will offer workshops, storytelling ‘samplers,’ an open microphone, and fun-filled storytelling concerts in Yorklyn, as well as in schools, libraries, and other venues in Southeastern Chester County, PA, and New Castle County, DE.
In addition to the ‘spoken word,’ the Yorklyn Storytelling Festival will also explore visual, written, and musical storytelling in multiple media.
