Storytelling Festival Preview
Date: Tuesday, September 3
7 PM

Enjoy a free preview of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival with your friends and family. Our partnership with the festival allows the Library to bring in fantastic storytellers and may inspire you to check out more of the same at the festival later in the week.

About Tim Lowry-
"Tim is a human time machine who makes history happen in your hands and collapses hours into moments of magic. It is a pleasure and a joy to be swept along into one of his narratives and an instant later you realize an hour has passed. With careful and deliberate, but nearly invisible crafting, Tim’s “off-the-cuff” stories flow as luxuriously as melted chocolate and are just as delicious. A Festival favorite, Tim ranks among the top tellers on the audience’s “must-hear” list."

About Anne Rutherford-
Anne grew up in a little Pennsylvania town along the Susquehanna River, in a house with a graveyard on one side and a cow pasture on the other. She first took the stage in at age 7, as a singing cow in the Holy Trinity Elementary Christmas pageant. During that debut she tripped over the boy playing the donkey and toppled the Holy Family, making a future on the stage unlikely. But, a few years later, she cracked a joke that made her mother laugh when there wasn’t much else to laugh about— and her joy for entertaining people began to blossom.

Anne performs and leads workshops across the country as a solo performer and as a duo with her husband, storyteller Norm Brecke. She is grateful to everyone who is part of the community of storytelling, especially those who are its audience, because, as she says “Without you— I’d be talking to myself.”
