Greetings from the CarteretCounty Public Libraries, 

            We are so pleased to offer you the line-up for our 16th Annual Storytelling Festival.

We will again have performances on four Wednesday mornings in July at 10:00 am., at the Crystal Coast Civic Center, Morehead City,

and also four afternoon shows at 2:00 pm., at the Bethlehem Methodist Church, corner of Bogue Loop Rd. and Rt. 24 in Bogue. 

We are generously supported by the Friends of the Bogue Banks Public Library, the Friends of the Carteret County Public Library and the Friends of the Western Carteret Public Library, without which these programs would not be possible. We deeply appreciate their considerations for our Storytelling Festival.

Our list of excellent performers is: 

Wednesday July 10th: Donna Tillman from Greenville, SC.

Donna seeks to thrill audiences with her dynamic style and share the love of stories and literature with audiences across the globe. Educating, Enriching and Entertaining.

A storyteller at heart, she loves to tell anything from Folk and Fractured Fairy Tales to Family stories and Personal Foibles. She believes no matter our age, we all need stories. 

Wednesday July 24th: Science Tellers from Hillsborough, NJ.

Science and storytelling were accidentally mixed. Here is what happened…

Storytelling and Exciting science experiments come together into an unprecedented theatrical experience.
