From STAFF REPORTS

Each year, on or about the third Saturday in November, guilds and storytelling enthusiasts all around the globe gather to share their talents, celebrating the fine art of storytelling. This annual event is called Tellabration!

Presented by the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild, this year’s regional event will take place Saturday, Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the McKinney Center, 103 Franklin Ave., Jonesborough.

While the event promises to deliver the finest in our region’s storytelling, Tellabration! also contributes to a worthwhile cause. This year, The Crumley House Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center has been named the recipient of the event’s proceeds.

“Storytelling in our region and throughout the world is such a rich tradition. We are honored to be part of the event and gracious to be named as the recipient of this year’s Tellabration!proceeds,” said Guynn Edwards, Crumley House Executive Director.

“It is through valued community partners and individuals who provide this type of support that we are able to succeed in the complex operation of one of our nation’s leading traumatic brain injury rehabilitation facilities.

“We are blessed to be a part of this community,” added Edwards.

Tellabration! 2019 includes storytellers Rebecca Alexander, Wallace Shealy, Mary Lawrence and featured teller, Geraldine Buckley.
