2017 Storytelling Festival

On Saturday, April 15th, the CCB hosted the 2017 Storytelling Festival at the School of Information Sciences. This year, iSchool assistant professor Kate McDowell coordinated the event alongside iSchool student Sarah Sahn.  The Festival featured both new performers and returning storytellers sharing age-old folklore, personal stories, and everything in between.
