Storyteller at library Thursday

Join Rowan Public Library for an evening of entertaining stories with renowned storyteller Suzi Whaples at the library in Salisbury. This event will take place on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. in the library’s Stanback Room.
Whaples has been traveling the United States telling stories for more than 30 years and the library is excited that she will perform to celebrate the 12th annual Stories by the Millstream Festival.
Whaples offers a unique experience in storytelling. Her dialect, lightning quick wit and a gentle demeanor perfectly blend stories of her life, her family’s lives and some that are even larger than life. The stories she shares are ones she has written herself, as well as family stories passed down from her Appalachian ancestors. Each tale intertwines the poignant, the encouraging and, often, the flat-out hilarious.
Last October she was a featured teller, new voice, at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tenn.
The following morning, Friday, Sept. 16, Whaples will be the featured teller, joining 24 other storytellers as part of the annual Stories by the Millstream Festival, a library storytelling festival held at Sloan Park for Rowan-Salisbury Schools’ second-graders to encourage the love of reading and stories.
For more information please call the library at 704-216-7728.
