Tellabration in Valle Crucis Nov. 17

by Anna Oakes

Watauga County will once again participate in Tellabration, a worldwide storytelling celebration held every year on the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Tellabration will be held at the original Mast General Store in Valle Crucis on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Admission is free.

The storytellers will be Ted Hicks, son of legendary storyteller Ray Hicks;

Orville Hicks, Ray’s cousin; and Tammy Sanabria. Doyle Pace, also a storyteller, will serve as the emcee.

In addition to Mast Store, Tellabration is sponsored by Watauga Arts Council and Deerfield Ridge Assisted Living.

Tellabration was started in 1988 by J.G. Pinkerton, a Connecticut storyteller. Since then, it has spread across the world; Tellabration is held on every continent except Antarctica.
