Travelin' to Tell!  NOVEMBER!

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK STORYTELLERS' ANNUAL "IN THE TRADITION" FESTIVAL AND CONFERENCE was the best of family reunions.  Storsytelling at its best, with, for and from storytellers of all age--yes, NABS' young folks come every year and learn, tell, and perpetuate the art and craft of African American Storytelling; NABS also supports its Circle of Elders, and story styles that encompass singing, poetry, drumming, dancing, tall tales, spiritual storytelling, workshop presentations, and more!  I may not be able to attend next year (October 31 - November 4 in North Carolina), but YOU can join NABS and get ready for a good time. NABS is open to ALL!  www.nabsinc.org
