This most ancient of the human arts captures and heals the human heart. Storytelling is a powerful art form that includes folktales, myths, legends, tall tales, religious stories, and personal stories.
This new festival, The PowellsWood Storytelling Festival, is made possible through the generous support of Diane and Monte Powell, owners of PowellsWood Garden, and the efforts of Des Moines resident Dr. Margaret Read MacDonald. The festival is co-sponsored by the Seattle Storytellers Guild.
The stellar list of national and local tellers for this event includes Eth-Noh-Tec (pictured at right), Donald Davis, Alton Chung, Joe Hayes, Debra Harris-Branham, Norm Brecke, Whitman Story Sampler, and Pat Peterson.
