Since the dawn of time people have told stories.... and the tradition continues today. The first of several fall Oklahoma events has now been scheduled for November 22, 2008 in Bethany, Oklahoma.
"Tellabration" (r) is a nationally celebrated evening honoring the art of storytelling. All across the country people will be gathering in halls and homes to enjoy the wonder of storytelling. The evening will be sponsored by Southwestern Christian University, 7210 NW 39th Expressway,(between Rockwell and Council), in partnership with the statewide storytelling organization, The Territory Tellers.
Yet to be announced, will be the total roster of talent for the evening. Cost for the evening will be $5 ($3 for students with ID). The event will be a wholesome and enjoyable journey into the world of traditional oral storytelling suitable for ages 12 and up. Part of the proceeds will go to student fundraising projects.
