FREE 8-hour Storytelling Residencies for Public

All of our events connect to the May Festival in one way or another.  This page lists our last 2017 free 8-hour Storytelling Residency that happens every January-March at River’s Bend Senior Center.  We already had two completed residencies at the Riverton and the Taylorsville Senior Center in 2017.
