BRAHM Presents “Jack Tales and Beech Mountain Storytellers” on Feb. 16

On Thursday, Feb. 16, at 11:00 a.m., join Dr. Sandra Ballard as she presents a talk on Jack Tales. Jack Tales are stories about a boy called Jack – as in “Jack and the Beanstalk.”  Western North Carolina, especially the area of Beech Mountain, northwest of Blowing Rock, has a particularly rich tradition of oral storytelling that goes back several generations. Dr. Ballard will discuss the Beech Mountain storytellers, such as Ray Hicks and folklorists and Appalachian Studies scholars Bill Lightfoot and Cratis Williams.

The talk will be accompanied by locally-baked goodies from Ugga Mugga Bakery and coffee from Boone-based Hatchet Coffee Company.
