Five local storytellers vie for this year’s championship!
Prepare to be amazed, amused and astonished when five area storytellers compete for the coveted title of “Island Tales Story Champion” on the evening of Thursday, October 5 at GFCW Women’s Club of Fernandina Beach at 201 Jean LaFitte Boulevard.
Presented by Friends of the Library, this year’s storytelling theme “Relationships” runs the gamut of emotions with thrills, laughs, surprises and more. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and libations first, then sit back and be regaled by some of the area’s finest storytellers.
The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. with fine food sponsored by 801 Kitchen & Bar and a cash bar. Storytellers take the stage at 7:00 p.m. to entertain you and earn your cash votes.
The stakes are high as audience members will vote with cash for their favorite storyteller. Tickets for votes will be on sale during the event with proceeds going to the Friends of the Library. FOL provides funding and support for up-to-date reading materials, furnishings, technology and educational programs for the newly renovated Fernandina Library.
Don’t miss it!
Advance tickets for the reception and storytelling slam are $50.
Tickets are also available for sale at the Fernandina Beach Library, 25 N 4th Street, Historic Fernandina Beach
