Storytelling Festival on October 19

On  Saturday, October 19, 1996, South Mountain Community College will host
its second annual Fall Storytelling Festival.  The festival will feature Rex
Marshall Ellis, a popular nationally known storyteller, who is currently
Director of the Center for Museum studies at the Smithsonian Institute.
Rex's interest in storytelling began while he was working at the Colonial
Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, Virginia. There he used
storytelling as a means of teaching African-American History.  He will
conduct a half day workshop titled, "Using Objects to Tell Stories about
Family and Culture."  The intended  audience is adults interested in
storytelling or anyone interested in including objects to enhance storytelling.

The schedule for the day is Registration at 8:00 am, Rex's Workshop from
8:30 - 12:00, Lunch from 12:00 - 1:20, Sampler Story Time featuring local
tellers from 1:30 - 4:30, Dinner from 5:30 - 6:45, Rex Ellis  in concert
from 7:00 - 9:15.  The cost for the workshop is $35, lunch is $7, dinner is
$10, or all three for $50.  The Sampler Story Time and Rex Ellis in concert
are both free and open to the public.  A  storytelling Resource Center will
be operated by Bookstar during the festival.  Pre-registration is required
