This year’s storytellers will be Libby Tipton, Terry Arrington and Tama Lunceford.

Libby Tipton will utilize a combination of sign, gesture, and voice to tell stories about her culture, subculture, and roots in a deaf Appalachian family. Terry, a native of southwest Virginia, has lived throughout the country and served in the United States Army.

Tama’s vivid imagination, expressive manner and colorful language touch minds and hearts through all kinds of stories; folktales, fairy tales, tall tales, personal, historical, and hysterical stories.

Each of the tellers will have several stories, including one story each to be told in the Haunted Cave.

Admission is $5 per adult and $2.50 for children 12 and under. Members are always free.
