Here:Say Storytelling Comes To The County Oct. 19

By Emily Tyra | Oct. 5, 2022

Get ready for a night filled with crisp wit, confiding humor and magnetic storytelling at 7pm Wednesday, October 19 in Suttons Bay.

The Leland Township Library, the Suttons Bay-Bingham District Library and the Friendship Community Center have teamed up to bring Here:Say Storytelling to Leelanau County.

Six storytellers will take the stage at the Friendship Community Center in Suttons Bay to tell true stories from their lives. The theme for the evening — Beyond Expectations — will be interpreted differently by each storyteller.

Those sharing first-person stories include Leelanau County’s own Larry Mawby, Bekah TenBrink, and Jeff Smith; seasoned Here:Say performer Nancy Baker; and others.

Karen Stein is the founder and creative director of Here:Say Storytelling and believes that stories connects us in valuable ways. Stein works with each storyteller to help transform their story from a first draft to a stage-ready performance. The stories may be individually humorous, sad or strange but together they’ll celebrate our shared humanity.

This event (Wednesday, October 19 at 7pm) is free and registration is not required. Seating is limited.
